New semi-SWATH announced

Walker Marine Design (WMD) has announced its new semi-SWATH design, the M05. Built to BV Wind Farm Service Ship S1 notation by AFAI Shipyard for Mainprize Offshore, the M05 is the brainchild of Bob Mainprize and James Walker of WMD and is WMD’s third consecutive design in the Mainprize Offshore range.

Utilising a unique semi-SWATH hull form, the 26metre vessel was devised to maximise efficiency and crew and passenger comfort; carrying 24 passengers with six crew members.

Designed as a high-speed cargo solution for wind farm operatives and their equipment, the M05’s twin Caterpillar engines and its ability to work in significant wave heights of over two metres also make it suited to fast-ferry, survey, pilotage and SAR (search and rescue) duties.

The M05, part of an extensive 12-month construction programme is the latest in the continuing evolution of the Mainprize Offshore line of vessels.

Primarily specialising in commercial marine vessels, WMD works with many of Europe’s leading boatyards and shipbuilders to deliver a diverse array of designs including houseboats, pilot vessels, multi-purpose workboats as well as fire and rescue craft.
