Work Boats

High Speed Work Boats are designed and built at Brödr. Hukkelberg. They are equipped to comply with UK MCA rules for this vessel type. Each vessel is inspected by Bureau Veritas and is designed, built and equipped in compliance with IMO SOLAS regualations.

 

Design and Construction

 

These boats are all 11 or 12 meters in length. All boats share the same well-proven design of a fully planing deep V hull in marine grade aluminium and superstructure of GRP sandwich construction. The boats are built for maximum safety of the crew.

  

Performance

 

The design of the vessel and strength of construction means that even at full speed, the boat can withstand all normal forces encountered during use offshore. The boat is manouverable, well balanced and extremely powerful with twin jets. 

 

A variety of engine sizes from a number of manufacturers can be installed to suit vessel size and the required performance of the end-user. Typical top speeds are from 32 knots depending on hull length and engine size. 

 

Operation

 

The craft is equipped with a single point lifting arrangement with an approved release hook for safe launch from the Mothership or platform. The pilot is able to release the craft remotely from inside the wheelhouse. The boat has a very low freeboard making it very easy to rescue survivors from the sea. A large, flat non-slip working area around the towing attachment, extending to the wheelhouse can be provided as an option.
