Below are standard built-in attributes for commercial vessels working in the offshore industry. While most yachts spend most of their lives in secluded marinas, tethered to shore-power and away from extreme weather; offshore work boats must be able to stay at sea for months at a time, in extreme weather and sea conditions, relying on solid technology and proven systems that provide crews and passengers with a safe and comfortable environment in order to perform critical missions above, and below the seas.

Standard Offshore Vessel

Spec includes:

  • Refined hull designs based upon extensive tank testing for stability, sea-keeping, operating efficiencies.

  • Deck-loading capacities and hull volumes are extraordinary allowing for new superstructure and incorporating expedition yacht equipment and custom facilities. 

  • Tankage allows for ocean-crossing range and long at-sea endurance.

  • Diesel-electric power combined with podded propulsion provide more efficient propulsion system, less pollution, increased operational efficiency, especially at slow speeds, and flexibility in locating machinery compartments, less noise and vibration.

    • Existing systems can easily be upgraded for hybrid operation with integrated battery systems, and next-generation fuel-cell and hydrogen systems.​

  • Azipod propulsion system

    • eliminates shafts to save space and reduce vibration 

    • Great maneuverability - the propeller can turn in all directions and enables superior crash maneuvering stop distance

    • Azipod can be placed below ship’s height and provide more efficiency than conventional systems.

    • two (or more) azipod systems, independent from one another, can be used to provide subtle maneuvering.

    • Side thruster's use is eliminated as pods can be used to provide side thrust.

  • Dynamic Positioning

    • Maneuverability is excellent; it is easy to change position.

    • Not dependent on water depth.

    • Quick set-up.

    • Allows access to environmentally protected reefs and sanctuaries

  • Vessels are classed for 25-40 passengers

    • upgraded HVAC for tropical operations​

    • State-of-the-art waste systems with long-endurance

    • Infirmary and medical facilities

    • Sate-of-the-art Navigation and Communications equipment

    • SOLAS, fire-safety, life rafts and all safety equipment to commercial class standards

  • Modular Adaptability for

    • Commercial Helicopter Ops including​

      • platforms​

      • refueling

      • hangars

    • Submersible and ROV operations

  • Galleys and Food Handling (refrigeration) set up for 24/7 operation and 30+ days endurance at-sea.
