Singapore’s Penguin Shipyard International launched 'Pelican Grace' – the first in a new series of 'green' crewboats dubbed the Flex-38.
The vessel’s 38-meter hull is based on a re-engineered, CFD-optimised upgrade of the company’s successful Flex-36 hullform, the flagship workboat of the Penguin Group.
The Flex-38 is powered by 3 x 820 kW Baudouin M26.2 main engines and burns substantially less fuel than its conventional peers.
Since 2007, the Flex-36 series has been practically defining the market for mid‐sized crew boats in Southeast
Asia. The 36‐metre vessel is a multipurpose workhorse in the
offshore industry, capable of transporting 70‐80 passengers at speeds of
up to 25 knots. Equipped with fire fighting capabilities and oil spill dispersant booms, the vessel can also carry 60,000 litres of fuel, 25,000 litres of fresh water and 40 tons of deck cargo.
