|Friday, 24 February 2012 11:45|
Based in Dampier, Western Australia, Argonaut Marine Group has signed a contract with Perth-based Global Marine Design to design a purpose-built, 16-metre crew transfer catamaran.
The vessel is presently under construction at Legend Boat Builders in Naval Base, Western Australia. The vessel will be in 1B survey and able to carry 35 passengers plus two crew, with enough aft deck space to carry several tonnes of cargo. With twin 1,491kW Caterpillar C18 engines, she will be able cruise at 25 knots fully loaded, and capable of a sprint speed of 32 knots. Driven by twin HamiltonJets her fully loaded draft will be 0.8 meters. The vessel will be completed and available for charter by the end of June.
Argonaut is also constructing an 11.9-metre work barge with a beam of 4.5 metres. This vessel will be ideally suited to assist in construction operations around wharves and terminals and will be ready for charter by late May.
In operation since 2008, Argonaut won the Dampier Port Authority’s marine pilotage contract last August, and its expansion plans include a continued vessel newbuild program and setting up a second office in Perth. A progressive company committed to providing quality service and products to the Australian marine industry, Argonaut is capable of supplying professional marine personnel and quality vessels, from work punts to large tugs.
