Grandweld to deliver two more 42m crewboatsYard News // October 19, 2012
Grandweld Shipyards has been awarded a contract to build 42m aluminum crewboats for Wesal Shipping.
The contract was signed on 9 October 2012 and follows the delivery of the 41m crewboat which Grandweld delivered to Wesal Shipping early in October 2010.
The new crewboat is a heavily modified version of the 41m, and is designed to reach a speed in excess of 25 knots. It will have what the yard described as "luxury seating, accommodation for VIP guests, larger deck space and enhanced comfort for the crew."
The vessel features a total seating capacity for 83 passengers, 110m2 loading area for over 90 tonnes of deck cargo, in addition to the capacity of carrying large amount of fuel and freshwater. The vessel will also have fully classed propulsion machinery.
Grandweld has also signed a contract to deliver an additional 42m crewboat to Global Marine. This contract was signed in August 2012.
