Incat Crowther gets crew boat design contract

Australia's Incat Crowther is to design a 20 m monohull crew boat to be built by VeeCraft Marine in Paarden Eiland, Cape Town, South Africa.

The vessel is characterized by its large foredeck, providing 27 sq m of cargo space. The bow features a passenger boarding area for safe and efficient transfers to offshore facilities. A dedicated passageway at the port side directly accesses the main passenger cabin which has comfortable seating for 25 passengers and a bathroom. A rescue zone is situated over the large aft platform.

Below decks, the vessel has four crew berths, a galley and mess and a bathroom.

Twin MAN 284 LE 413 main engines, each producing 1,000 hp at 2,100 rpm, will give the vessel a loaded service speed of 25 knots and a maximum speed of over 30 knots.

The vessel brings to ten the number of offshore energy service vessels under construction to Incat Crowther's designs.
