Outer Limit was launched by Richardson Devine Marine.
Incat Crowther has announced the launch of Outer Limit, a 35m catamaran workboat for Offshore Unlimited.
Launched by Richardson Devine Marine, Outer Limit is the third vessel for the operator after 2008ís Unlimited and 2010ís Limitless.
The vessel will have a deadweight of 125 tonnes, with capacity for up to 56 passengers on day operations and 32 berths for overnight operations.
Drawing on operational experience of Unlimited and Limitless, Outer Limit features numerous work spaces, with desks in every cabin and an upper deck workspace with 14 seats.
This workspace will be fitted with direct wireways to the aft deck to allow for quick installation and configuration of deck mounted equipment, whilst an adjacent bathroom improves functionality.
Two large cabins on the upper deck feature half height glass bulkheads with blinds to allow interaction between the workstations and the helm.
The main deck cabin houses a wet room with lockers and bathroom, lounge, galley, mess, medical room and six cabins. A pair of these cabins will be able to be joined by retracting a dividing wall, creating a large four berth cabin.
The vesselís hulls house a further six cabins, four of which also feature a sliding joining partition. In addition to these cabins, the hulls house refrigerator and freezer rooms, as well as service and storage spaces which offer increased range and operational flexibility.
The aft working deck features over 160m2 of work space - enough to accommodate a quartet of 20ft containers.
A Heila HLM 35-4S deck crane is fitted with remote control. A moonpool is also fitted and there are mounts for a removable luffing A-frame with 20 tonne capacity.
The vessel is powered by a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT main engines, each producing 1,600hp. Propulsion is by a pair of five-bladed propellers.
In recent trials, Outer Limit achieved a loaded speed in excess of 22 knots.
Service speed will be 20 knots and the range will be 1,800nm. Manoeuvring is enhanced by a pair of Wesmar bow thrusters.
