First-of-line Multi Cat named as interest grows

February of last year saw a contract signed for a new Multi Cat with larger deck capacity and greater winch capacity; just over eighteen months later the vessel has been named at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld.

Netherlands-based S.T. Marine Support co-founder and director Vasco Tammes explains, “When we needed a Multi Cat larger than those we’ve used before, we approached Damen. We have every confidence in their reputation for the supply of high-quality workboats and in their provision of globally available service support.”

Jeroen van Woerkum, Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld commercial manager, said, “We are very pleased that S. T. Marine Support chose, once again, to come to Damen when they required a new workboat. This is the fourth Damen vessel they have ordered since commencing their operations and we have gone on to develop a strong connection. This, combined with the company’s clear understanding of what they wanted from their new vessel, played a significant role in the development of the Multi Cat 3513. The client put a lot of energy into designing the layout of the vessel and helping us to get everything arranged and organised in the pre-construction phase. As a result, the construction process was very smooth and efficient.”

Damen sees growing interest in Multi Cats with increased winch capacity and deck space and states it expects to build models on this scale going forwards.
