CTruk is offering a 26m Semi-SWATH vessel in collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee for the European offshore wind industry.
 
The company plans to build this hull form in advanced composite, giving the enhanced seakeeping benefits of SWATH technology and the load-carrying capacity of a catamaran alongside increased power and speed gained from weight-saving composite. According to the builder, the 26.3m semi-SWATH design offers improvements in motion levels over conventional vessels and, powered by 2 x MTU 12V engines, the composite version of this proven vessel is expected to achieve 25 knots fully loaded (maximum speed 29 knots).
 
CTruk will enhance the design with its patented reconfigurable deck to offer three versions: Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV), 60 passenger crew supply vessel and hydrographic survey including accommodation.
