The large wheelhouse provides exceptional comfort with suspension seating for a total of eight crew and passengers, washroom facilities and is also fully air conditioned for the harsh ambient conditions in the region. Easy access for daily maintenance of the machinery is provided by large, flush mounted deck hatches. The vessel has demonstrated exceptional performance and during sea trials surpassed the contract performance requirements, with the two Cummins QSC 600 hp engines and Rolls-Royce A32 waterjets providing a maximum speed of 43 knots.Commenting on the contract completion John Bonafoux, BMT Nigel Gee’s Managing Director, said: “We were pleased to support Alnmaritec with the design of this high performance patrol boat which yet again demonstrates our expertise in specialist vessel design. We have worked with Alnmaritec on a number of recent projects but this is the first full hull and structural design we have provided. Given the growth in the market for such specialist types of vessels, we hope to develop this relationship further.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 23, 2012; Image: bmt View post tag: complete View post tag: speed View post tag: Boat Industry news View post tag: BMT Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: High Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: Alnmaritec, BMT Nigel Complete Design, Delivery of High Speed Patrol Boat View post tag: DELIVERY View post tag: Patrol View post tag: Naval View post tag: Nigellast_img read more
