Strategic Marine built ten 42m steel-hulled crew boats for P.T.A.S Sdn. Bhd. in Brunei, a 100% Bruneian Bumiputra owned company. This is a unique project for Strategic Marine, being the first steel hulled crew boats project and the first time collaborating with Incat Crowther for the design of crew vessels. The vessels take their inspiration from the existing range of our aluminium crew boats and utilise the same drive line as the standard 40m with 2 x Cummins KTA 38 wing engines and a centre KTA 50 providing 4,500 bhp to twin disc gear boxes and fixed pitch shaft driven propellers.
The vessels were built in our Singapore and Vietnam yards and these photos show some of the completed vessels on land and in the water in late 2013 and first quarter 2014.
