Incat Crowther press release
The vessel is being built by Seacrest Marine and has been developed as a solution to a strict set of mission requirements for use in patrol, rescue and enforcement activities within Thai domestic waters.
The vessel will be the eighth Incat Crowther vessel to be built by Seacrest Marine and will accommodate 16 crew and 6 officers below decks with a fourteen-day autonomy.
The main deck will house crew and officer messes, galley and stores, laundry, captain’s cabin and arms stores with a full walkaround deck. The aft deck has a deck crane and a fast rescue vessel for at-sea boarding activities.
The upper deck houses a radio room and ship’s office. Deck mounted armaments are located around the exterior decks, a well as a fire-fighting monitor.
Powered by three MTU 16V2000 M86 main engines driving fixed-pitch propellers, the vessel will have a top speed of over 34 knots. Low draft was a key requirement, which has been addressed by the incorporation of Incat Crowther’s highly efficient propeller tunnels.
The vessel is scheduled for sea trials later this year.
