Tuco Marine has delivered an 11-meter crewboat to Emilsen Fisk in Rørvik, Norway.

The new ProZero boat did more than 35 knots during sea trials which constitutes an increase in transit speed of 11 knots compared to the previous crew boat employed at Emilsen Fisk. Notably, this increased transit speed was achieved without additional fuel consumption.

The 11-meter ProZero boat will be used for passenger transport at the Emilsen Fisk AS breeding plant off Rørvik. The sleek and deep V-bottom secures a comfortable ride and exceptional seakeeping capabilities – all-important qualities if the crew is to arrive rested and ready at the facility.

The boat is equipped with diesel heating, dual VHF, radar, 12" touch multi-screen, AIS, shore power supply, light bar, air-suspended driver’s seat and toilet with access from the aft deck.

The vessel is made from composite materials and is equipped with aluminium railing. Smart material selection contributes to the desired weight reductions and ensures low maintenance and superior strength. Thanks to its low weight and an inboard Volvo Penta diesel engine, the vessel can achieve speeds of more than 35 knots.

The delivery to production manager Roberth Aakvik from Emilsen Fisk was concluded at Tuco Marine by Director of ProZero Norge AS, Kjetil Nygaard together with project manager Jakob Büchert from Tuco Marine.

The ProZero boats are available in many variants, all of which are tailored to the customer's unique specifications. The wheelhouse layout is designed for optimal utilization of the latest and most advanced navigation and surveillance technology.
