17m High Bridge WFSV/Survey Vessel

LOA: 17m

Beam: 6.01m

Engines: Twin MAN 750hp

Speed: 24+Kts

Specialised Equipment: Windfarm Docking Bow Fender, Multibeam deployment Mechanism through an internal moon pool.

This is the evolution of Blyth Catamaran’s standard 17m design separating the helm and the passenger space via the top wheelhouse. This allows increased internal working space in the main cabin so this vessel can easily accommodate both survey duties and also crew transfer duties both to ships and windfarm turbines. The first of these vessels has been bought by Ostend Marine Services (http://www.omsshipsupport.be/) building on their fleet which already includes the Blyth 14m ‘Aquaflight’.

With starting prices for the High Bridge as low as £720,000.00 this is a truly economical multirole vessel.
