Rockabill Marine Design, a company under UK-based the CSO Marine Group, has unveiled images of a new concept design for a 32-metre crewboat.

The aluminium catamaran vessel will be capable of supporting activities in the offshore renewables sector. There will be accommodations for six crewmembers and 30 passengers/technicians as well as a large foredeck with capacity for two standard 20-foot containers.

The vessel will initially be fitted with hybrid system that also includes diesel generators and podded thrusters. The generators can be converted in future to enable operation on low-emission alternative fuels if needed.
