Customising stock hulls enables fast delivery

A new vessel has been added to a leading workboat company's fleet just 5 months after the contract order was signed.

Inverlussa Marine Services, based on the Isle of Mull, Scotland, supplies vessels for service contracts throughout the UK and Europe, including the offshore wind and fish-farming sectors. The latest addition to the fleet was delivered on 30 March in Hardinxveld, The Netherlands, and is the company’s first vessel from Damen Shipyards Group. The fast delivery was facilitated by Damen’s practice of building hulls for stock

Based on the standardised, proven Damen Multi Cat 1908 design, the Patricia Matheson will operate in the aquaculture industry, carrying out a diverse range of tasks including grid inspections, anchor-handling and equipment towage.

Customisation has included the positioning of the capstan cranes and manouevring stands, some tailoring to the vessel’s accommodation and the installation of an additional generator to provide the power the vessel needs to serve the aquaculture industry.   In line with Inverlussa’s focus on operating efficiency, the Patricia Matheson features an additional crane and a larger main winch.

Ben Wilson, managing director of Inverlussa Marine Services said, “We enjoyed working with Damen on this project. Their Multicats are renowned around the world and when the right opportunity arose, we were delighted to partner with them.  The Patricia Matheson will strengthen the breadth of services that we can now provide to our clients in Scotland and further afield.”

Damen sales manager Mike Besijn said, “It’s been a pleasure working with Inverlussa Marine Services on the development of their Multi Cat. They really knew what they were looking for in their vessel and have provided us with valuable input in her development. On behalf of Damen I would like to wish the company every success with their first Damen vessel.”
