Mainprize Offshore has signed a shipbuilding contract with Manor Marine for a 26-metre Supa-Swath catamaran designed by Walker Marine Design.
The MO8 vessel, due for delivery in Q2 2022, will be the sixth crew transfer vessel (CTV) constructed by Manor Marine, but the first the company will build for Mainprize Offshore.
The 24-pax vessel features a Supa-Swath hull form, 175m2 of deck space and a cargo capacity of 35 tonnes, and can reach a maximum speed of 27 knots.
The order for the MO8 vessel with Manor Marine follows Mainprize Offshore’s contracts for MO6 and MO7 vessels with Walker Marine Design last year. The two 25.7-metre vessels are being built by Shipbuilding Asia.
