This Wave Handler 800 operates as a daughter craft to an FPSO stationed off the coast of West Africa, primarily on mooring line and hose handling duties for the shuttle tankers. She has a small wheelhouse with seating for six and a bow access arrangement forward for personnel transfers. The aft deck is fitted with working platforms recessed into both the quarters and a ramp to facilitate hose handling with an hydraulic capstan built into a plinth on the deck.
