Strategic Marine, the specialist shipbuilder and fabricator, has confirmed its stock program of personnel transport vessels is market-ready.
“Our stock program currently incorporates two class leading designs which are in high demand through its wide deployment capabilities and operating envelope,” says Reece Newbold, Group Business Development Manager for Strategic Marine. “Producing them as stock vessels decreases delivery times for clients and enabling our clients to address opportunities with a reduced timelines and greatly improves commercial returns whilst allowing us to be highly cost competitive as well as decreases warranty issues and ultimately customer down time.”
Offshore40 Gen3 Crew / Security / Multipurpose Vessel:
“The Offshore40 Gen3 is a 40-metre multi-purpose workboat available for immediate delivery,” Newbold advises. “The Gen 3 can be utilised for security and patrol boat duties, emergency response, pollution control, general workboat activity such as crew and cargo transfer, and as a shadow vessel.”
The Gen 3, a popular and proven vessel in the global workboat market, comes supported by Strategic Marine’s worldwide service and warranty network.
“Judging by what we understand from clients and associates, we are confident the Gen 3 is the most economical high-specification vessel of its class currently in play,” says Newbold.
“The Gen3 hull has improved on what was already an exceptional vessel and delivered best in class performance and economy, as well as improving cargo capacity’s and vessel handling and manoeuvrability,” he added.
“The StratCat is a 26-metre crew transfer vessel we currently have available with a variety of propulsion packages including Quad Volvo IPS, Quad WaterJet, Twin Controllable Pitch Propeller, and Twin Fixed Pitch propellers,” explains Newbold. The vessel can cater for up to 24 passengers in the main cabin and accommodate seven crew members.
Whilst developed primarily for the Offshore wind market these vessels are also suited to crew transfers in a variety of industries as well as general purpose duties.
Our stock vessels have been configured to be as flexible as possible to allow the vessels to be customised further in order to match our clients’ requirements whilst still utilising a common shell to ensure class leading quality and price.
“Our ambition is to expand our stock program to include a range of other vessel sizes and differing markets. Our standard product range is under continual development and we look forward to unveiling the next vessels that will form part of our stock line”, says Newbold.
