UK-based specialist aluminium boatbuilder Alnmaritec has delivered the logistics supply vessel ‘Montarik’ to the ship service company Gibunco for operations in Gibraltar harbour.
This larger version of Alnmaritec’s successful ‘Wave Provider’ class is fast, robust, all-weather craft designed to ferry cargo and personnel at high speed in and around harbours to ships at anchor and to support diving and underwater hull cleaning operations. She joins a fleet of four other Alnmaritec vessels in Gibraltar and Algeciras, where this model has proved highly popular among port and harbour operators. At 18 metres in length overall with a six-metre beam and a 0.7-metre draught, she is the largest vessel in the Gibunco fleet, can carry a substantial payload and is capable of over 20 knots.
The Wave Provider is an aluminium alloy asymmetric catamaran with fine forward sections developing into a medium deadrise single-chine hull form aft. She is fitted with twin Scania DI16 engines, each rated 533kW, coupled to twin Ultra Dynamics UJ410 waterjets via Twin Disc MG5135SC gearboxes. This gives her impressive manoeuvrability for operating in and around confined spaces, as well as a maximum speed of over 20 knots.
‘Montarik’ has a large working deck area serviced by a nine-tonne boom crane with a dive ladder and access gates. The vessel has a large two level wheelhouse/saloon with seating for 12 technicians, a WC and a small galley in the lower wheelhouse, and a raised control station for a two-man crew.
