Sealink Engineering and Slipway.
Built for Sealink's own use, the new
vessel joins a diverse fleet of offshore
vessels that are in operation in oil and gas
fields across the world's oceans.
The ABS-classified vessel was designed in

handling tug/supply (AHTS) vessel has an
overall length of 61.2 metres on a beam of
16 metres. Depth to main deck is six metres.
The design features a plumb stem below
the waterline under an imposing three-deck
forecastle that extends back almost half the
hull length. The extensive aft deck area is set
up for both anchor handling and standard
towing as well as for the transport of a
substantial cargo of supplies when necessary.
Deck machinery is supplied by Zicom,

cabins. Crew amenities include recreation
room, mess, sick bay and dedicated laundry
room. The spacious wheelhouse is outfitted
to modern navigation standards and

fore and aft control stations.
The engine room is outfitted with twin
