Seacrest Marine Building New Patrol Boat for Thailand
Construction is well underway on a 42-meter patrol vessel for operation in Thailand, naval architect Incat Crowther announced.
The vessel is being built by Seacrest Marine and has been developed as a solution to a strict set of mission requirements for use in patrol, rescue and enforcement activities within Thai domestic waters.
The vessel will be the eighth Incat Crowther-designed vessel to be built by Seacrest Marine and will accommodate 16 crew and six officers below decks with a 14-day autonomy.
The main deck will house crew and officer messes, galley and stores, laundry, captain’s cabin and arms stores with a full walkaround deck. The aft deck has a deck crane and a fast rescue vessel for at-sea boarding activities.
The upper deck houses a radio room and ship’s office. Deck mounted armaments are located around the exterior decks, a well as a firefighting monitor.
Powered by three MTU 16V2000 M86 main engines driving fixed-pitch propellers, the vessel will have a top speed of over 34 knots. Low draft was a key requirement, which has been addressed by the incorporation of Incat Crowther’s highly efficient propeller tunnels.
The vessel is scheduled for sea trials later this year.
