Strategic Marine wins Centus Marine contract for two 42m Fast Crew Boats

Strategic Marine (S) Pte Ltd has secured a contract to build two 42m Fast Crew Boats (FCB) for Centus Marine Sdn Bhd.

This is the fifth and sixth vessel built by Strategic Marine for Centus Marine and follows the delivery of a 40m FCB in February 2021.

Both FCBs are scheduled for completion in 2nd Quarter 2021 and 4th Quarter 2021 respectively.

This design is a customized solution developed in close collaboration with Centus Marine to meet their operational needs.

Propelled by three Cummins KTA50 engines, the 42m FCB will cruise at 30 knots, and can reach top speed of over 31 knots.

The design incorporates the robust engineering of hulls proven in tough commercial marine environment and is fully compliant to Petronas’ requirements.

Crew comfort and safety is another major consideration for Centus Marine which is reflected in the interior arrangement of the vessels.

The accommodation area features 12 berths in seven cabins and can comfortably accommodate up to 100 personnel onboard.

It offers spacious business class recliner seats, dedicated luggage racks, a large, incorporated deck storage and wide, efficient walkways to facilitate crew transfer amid demanding offshore conditions.
