Centus Marine’s newest crewboat floated out
Singapore builder Strategic Marine has floated out a new fast crewboat being built for Malaysian operator Centus Marine.
Designed by Southerly Designs of Australia, Centus Nine is a sister vessel of Centus Eight, which was delivered by Strategic Marine to the same customer earlier this year.
Once completed, the crewboat will have a length of 40 metres, a displacement of 55 tonnes, and three Caterpillar C32 engines that will deliver speeds in excess of 30 knots. Onboard amenities include 70 reclining seats for passengers, seven cabins housing a total of 16 berths, a galley/mess, and a walk-in chiller and freezer.
Cargo can be transported on the vessel’s 120-square-metre aft deck.
