Australian boatbuilder Norman R. Wright and Sons (NWS) will soon commence construction of a new high-speed landing craft for the Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES).

The 20-metre catamaran will be used to perform a range of tasks including patrol operation, dive support, marine infrastructure installation and maintenance, and island park management.

The vessel will be operated in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
