Incat Crowther announced that Cheoy Lee has delivered a second pair of 36m Monohull Crewboats to Singapore-based operator Swissco Holdings.

Swissco Spring and Swissco Leopard follow on from the highly successful Swissco Puma and Swissco Cheetah.

The design features 94 square meters of aft cargo deck, capable of carrying 50 tons. The main deck passenger compartment features 70 seats, beverage counter, luggage racks and a pair of heads. Forward doors allow direct access to the foredeck for bow transfer of personnel. Below decks, the vessels accommodate ten crew in six cabins. Crew bathroom, laundry, galley and mess are situated aft of these.

The vessels are powered by three Cummins KTA38M2 main engines, each producing 1,350 bhp at 1,900 rpm.

These drive through Twin Disc MGX6690SC gearboxes to fixed-pitch propellers. The hull shape was refined through CFD analysis, giving the vessels a service speed of 24 knots and a top speed of over 27 knots.

An additional two 36 m Monohull Crewboats are under construction at Cheoy Lee for Swissco Holdings. Continuing a long relationship between designer and builder, Incat Crowther can also announce that Cheoy Lee are currently building a pair of 40 m Monohull Crewboats. These vessels, to be delivered to an undisclosed operator, are an evolution of the 36m vessel, offering increased capability and capacity.
