Designed by NG Shipyards in cooperation with local naval architects Van Dorresteijn Design, the Bureau Veritas-classed COS Master will be operated in support of the Dutch offshore wind market. This series will consist of four 27-metre monomarans with a cruising speed of 27 knots, with capacity for 30 passengers, five crew members and up to 15 tonnes of deck cargo.
Compared to other fast crew boats, another advantage offered by a monomaran design is the ability to sail at higher speeds without any increase in the total installed power. The design also achieves a clear reduction in fuel consumption, which the owner reports is around 15 to 20 percent lower when transporting 30 passengers than the consumption per passenger of similarly-sized crew boats with capacities of 24.
VABO Composites has contributed to these extraordinary results by supplying all the lightweight doors and hatches. A further benefit of our partnership is that some of these doors and hatches also come with the FRD60 fire rating.
