This rugged research no nonsense aquaculture support boat is one of the highly successful Alnmaritec Wave Worker class. She is designed specifically for work on a mussel farm site in North west Scotland and she has a number of features unique to this role. She has three davits, two telescopic and one swinging davit on the port side for mussel harvesting and a 9 tonne metre hydraulic crane on the starboard side. She has a 120bhp donkey diesel engine powering the hydraulic system which includes power take-offs for mussel stripping, grading, de-clumping and washing equipment and she has a sea water ring main running down the length of the boat. Inside her compact wheelhouse she has a helm seat and folding seas for three crew as well as ample storage and a basic galley with a microwave. At the bow she has a removable bulwark for loading over a jetty and she has beaching skegs to allow her to take the ground; all of which make her a real versatile workhorse.
