Custom design delivered on time

Designed to meet the specific requirements of oil majors, a custom-designed 42m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) is the fourth Strategic Marine vessel delivered to offshore marine service provider Centus Marine in the last two years.

Powered by three Cummins KTA50 engines, the FCB completed its sea trials last month achieving impressive results, cruising at 30 knots and reaching top speeds of more than 31 knots. The FCB's station-keeping and manoeuvring capabilities have been enhanced with a tunnel thruster installed at the bow. The FCB has also been designed with rigorous weight control measures to boost performance and incorporates robust hull engineering for the tough commercial environments and demanding offshore conditions where it will be operational.

Crew comfort is a priority, and this is reflected in the interior arrangement of the vessel. It can carry up to 100 personnel in spacious business class recliner seats with dedicated luggage racks and an accommodation area that offers 12 berths in seven cabins.  The new vessel also offers bow boarding, an enlarged wheelhouse and incorporates a large deck storage area with wide walkways to ensure safe and efficient crew transfer in challenging offshore conditions.

Centus Marine said, “This new vessel boosts our fleet, significantly enhancing our capacity and capabilities. As before, working with Strategic Marine we have been able to incorporate our latest refined design and ensure that this vessel is as tailored to our specific operating conditions as possible.”

Strategic Marine’s General Manager Commercial, Mr Wayne Poh said, “This is the latest vessel successfully delivered on schedule to Centus Marine. We pride ourselves on close communication between both parties at all stages of the build and our commitment to continuous improvement means that we are always ready to respond to customer feedback. Centus Marine is a highly valued customer and we appreciate their confidence in our high quality vessels, and look forward to working with them in the future.”

Strategic Marine Group has now built and delivered more than 600 vessels made of both aluminium and steel for a variety of clients in the maritime, offshore and naval defence sectors.
