'Anabelle 2' is a Yamba Welding &
Engineering aluminium work boat
purpose-built for STE Sarl Entreprise
Viratelle in Noumea.
The 10.15-metre boat is built to USL
Code and to the strict guidelines set down
by the Marine Marchande in Noumea,
This sturdy workhorse vessel carries out
tasks that include crew transfers -- boat to
boat, or boat to shore, and a variety of tug
and workboat related jobs for which a
special bow was designed and constructed.
'Anabelle 2' has an overall length of
10.15 metres on a beam of 3.8 metres, and a
draught of 0.6 metres. The vessel is powered
by a Cummins QSB 305 rated 228kW at
2,600rpm (medium continuous power).
Home-ported in Kalix, Sweden and built
by Uki Workboat of Finland for the
Swedish Maritime Administration
(Sjöfartsverket), 'Klippen' is a channel
service vessel with two sister-vessels.
'Klippen's' main tasks include the
maintenance of spar buoys, buoyages and
lights used to mark channels.
The aluminium vessel has an overall
length of 19.7 metres and a waterline
length of 17.1 metres on a beam of 5.7
metres and a waterline beam of 5.1 metres
with a draught of 0.8 metres.
'Klippen' is powered by twin Volvo D16
MH main engines, each rated at 551kW at
1,900rpm, driving twin Rolls-Royce Marine
FF500 waterjets, achieving a maximum
speed of 26 knots.
Auxiliary power is supplied by a
single MASE IS 25T engine, producing
25kVA at 1,500rpm.
'Kilimanjaro' built by Richardson Devine
Marine (RDM) in Tasmania, Australia, is a
35-metre Incat Crowther-designed
catamaran ferry that carries 400
passengers at a service speed of 22 knots.
The main cabin contains seating for 200
passengers with further seating for 128 in
the vessel's upper cabin with an additional
72 exterior seats behind the upper cabin
and on the wheelhouse deck.
With large and abundant tinted
windows, the vessel provides excellent,
panoramic viewing from all seats, allowing
passengers to enjoy the scenery.
'Kilimanjaro' became the "queen" of the
Coastal Fast Ferries fleet, operating between
Dar es Salaam and the island of Zanzibar
off the east coast of Tanzania.
Powered by twin Cummins KTA38M2
main engines, each producing 783kW, the
vessel cruises at 24 knots at half load.
Triple UltraJet 377 waterjets propel this
15-metre fire boat for the Oslo (Norway)
Built by Norway's Hemnes-Mek Vorksted,
this rapid response fire and rescue craft is
powered by triple Volvo Penta D9-500
373kW engines via ZF305-2 transmissions.
The propulsion system provides a top
speed of 36 knots enabling rapid response
to emergencies and 34 knots when fully
laden. Ultra's JetMaster joystick control
system combined with a Kobelt 6518 triple
lever control head provides excellent
manoeuvrability and fine control at all
boat speeds, enabling the helmsman to
hold the boat position against the reaction
of the fire gun at full stream.
