Sea trials of Stapem Offshore’s new catamaran scheduled for November

Stapem Narval, Stapem Offshore’s newest diving support catamaran, will undergo sea trials in November following a period of final outfitting at Legacy Marine’s yard in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Stapem Narval shares an identical hull and superstructure layout with Stapem Beluga in addition to being similar in size and roughly comparable in features and equipment.

Successful sea trials measuring vessel performance and seaworthiness will subsequently lead to certification, commissioning, and an expected delivery to Angola sometime in December 2018.
