Currently the vessel is configured to accommodate 208 passengers and 12 crew members on the upper deck in three classes: VIP, First and Tourist. As brokers only, we believe it would be possible for Buyers to increase passenger capacity by re-configuring the superstructure layout. In addition to ferry employment, she is well suited to a range of applications including military logistics, EEZ patrolling, vital asset protection and other offshore roles. Notably she is equipped with helicopter landing and onboard medical facilities, making her very suited to search and rescue and medivac operations. Located on the bridge deck, the helicopter deck is suitable for the landing of medium-class helicopters (rated for a 6.4t helicopter). The wheelhouse was designed to provide a full 360-degree visibility (including a view to the helicopter landing deck). The helicopter deck is licensed for domestic operations and has lighting systems for night-time operations. A CILAS gyro stabilised glide slope indicator is in place to enhance safety.
The vehicle deck aft is designed to take axle loads of 9t or 12t (dual wheel). The rest of the main deck has a design maximum axle load of 3t (single wheel).
The vessel will be delivered in Class and can be inspected by prior arrangement in the Middle East. 10 days notice is required to arrange.
