This is the second in class of the new Wave Hauler series from Alnmaritec. She is slightly smaller than the first boat to comply with the requirements of the mothership but is again intended for us as a as a tender for an FPSO in an oil field in west Africa and she is fitted out for line and hose hauling duties as well as personnel transfer. She is designed to be launched and recovered using the ship’s crane and she she has a bollard pull of 2.75 tonnes and a speed of over 15 knots. She is fitted with a 2 tonne hydraulic capstan with a stern towing arrangement as well as a dive platform aft with a removable dive ladder. She has a bow transfer platform and folding seating for up to 12 passengers in conjunction with a spacious working deck protected by a removable bimini cover. She sits on a cradle on the FPSO and she provides a very valuable addition to the vessel.
