Work boat: Largest fast crew boat

Australian Shipbuilder Incat Tasmania has delivered the 70m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) Muslim Magomayev to Caspian Marine Services as the first vessel it has purpose-built for the Oil and Gas industry. The type DP2 boat will be used to transport up to 150 offshore workers and 130 tonnes of deck cargo to multiple installations in the Caspian Sea at speeds of up to 35 knots. Propulsion is supplied by four 2880kW MTU engines, each turning Hamilton HT 900 waterjets. The vessel’s 16m beam is far narrower than usual for an Incat catamaran, but was determined by the width of the Volga-Don Canal, which the boat must transit. JS
