Evolution Commercial are pleased to announce the launch of the first of two Crew Transfer Catamarans built to service the Oil and Gas industry at Barrow Island.

Designed by One 2 Three Naval Architects and built by Evolution Commercial, this team broke all records with this project. The vessel was fully designed ready for cutting in 10 days by One 2 Three Naval Architects and the build to launch time was only 13 weeks!

The performance of this CTV has also proven the bona fides on the One 2 Three hull shape and attention to detail as the vessel came within 40kg of the designed weight, achieved six knots more than the contract speed and sits perfectly on the designed trim at 0.5 degree stern trim throughout the speed range.

The efficiency of the hull form is also evident when looking at the wake generated by this uniquely efficient design, or should we say ‘lack of wake’!

Powered with twin Cat C18 main engines rated at 650 BkW (873 BHP) at 2200 RPM and driving through Rolls Royce 36A3 water jets.

The Rolls Royce Joystick control system positioned at the main helm and aft docking station also makes for pin point docking with awesome visibility from both stations.

The vessel carries 36 pax and 2 crew and achieved 26 knots at 65% MCR fully loaded.

The second of these impressive vessels is due to be launched in about two weeks time.

Beneteau Swift Trawler 30 – Get ready for a surprise

Beneteau’s Swift Trawler range disproves the long held view that a family cruiser had to be a sportsfisherman. This latter type of craft, which the Americans call a convertible, does many things well, and by and large their seaworthiness is as notable as it is commanding. Yet as a planing hull, they are somewhat compromised for stability at low speeds or at anchor, which is how families use them
