The sub-24M multi-purpose platform is intended to transport live baby tuna across European waters as well as function as a capable workboat with her large deck and 70T load carrying capacity. The design is extremely versatile yet falls under the 24-metre length threshold and intended to be operated safely with five crew on international voyages thanks to the high level of automation, ergonomic design, and MLC 2006 compliant accommodation spaces.
The open deck is equipped with two 22Tm heavy duty cranes, for offloading of deck items as well as transferring of live fish overboard. A total of four holds, accessible from the main deck through deck hatches, store the precious live fish cargo, and are provided with advanced filtration and circulation systems to ensure optimal fish health during the long passages. Additionally, the vessel is multifunctional in its ability to tow fish pens as well as carry fish feed for eventual fish farm support activities.
The vessel is equipped with an aft positioned accommodation to sleep up to 6 crew members in full MLC 2006 compliance, allowing for international voyages, and providing the required sanitary and mess facilities for the long offshore permanence’s onboard.
The vessel is powered by two powerful 449bkW engines and onboard power supplied by two equally capable 188kW generator sets. Her CFD optimized hull ensures maximum efficiency and comfort despite her high deadweight carrying capacity.
