Seacat Services has signed a contract to build a new catamaran for deployment in the offshore wind sector. Seacat Weatherly, designed by Southampton-based naval architect Chartwell Marine, will be constructed by Isle of Wight firms Diverse Marine and Aluminium Marine Consultants (AMC) in Cowes, UK.
The contract includes an option for a further vessel. Scheduled for completion in March 2020, the Seacat Weatherly can accommodate 24 industrial personnel, alongside 4 crew. Seacat Weatherly will have a large foredeck, enhancing her cargo-carrying capacity, and has been optimised for safety, with designated walkways, handrails and safety sliding rails positioned for safe, repeatable crew transfer. The wheelhouse configuration provides total control and complete visibility during complex logistical and crew transfer operations.
