After successful sea trials, Damen shipyard group in the Netherlands has delivered the first of three new crewboats to Kanoo Marine (a division of Kanoo Shipping Agencies).

The first-of-class has already arrived in the Gulf, and will shortly commence service. The second vessel is just about to leave the shipyard and the third will undergo trials in June.

Kanoo Shipping Agencies (part of Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo) is a longtime customer of Damen. The company operates fast crewboats out of Ras Tanura and Juaymah (Saudi Arabia) and Fujairah (UAE).

The new crewboats are based on the standard Damen Stan Tender 1905 design, of which already three units are in operation with other owners.

The version developed for Kanoo can carry six passengers and a payload of 2.5 tons whilst maintaining a speed of 18 knots.

The vessel's main purpose will be to transfer ship's crews and stores and spares.
