This Wave Supplier is a tough, heavy duty landing craft which was supplied to the British Antarctic Survey for use as a cargo tender and personnel carrier for the ‘RRS Bransfield’ ice research ship, to support the British scientific bases in the Falkland Islands and in the Antarctic. The large working deck can carry a 20ft container and a bow ramp also allows for vehicular cargo. She is fitted with an hydraulic crane and she has an enclosed wheelhouse for the coxswain and four crew.
