Spanish yard delivers yacht support catamaran


Spanish shipyard Armon has delivered a new yacht support catamaran vessel.

Custom-designed by naval architects Incat Crowther and YCTS, Wayfinder has a length of 68 metres, a beam of 14 metres, and a draught of 2.4 metres to allow close coastline navigation. Features include a fully certified helipad and helicopter hangar, with accommodation and storage over four decks.

Wayfinder‘s assortment of yacht support vehicles includes a helicopter, five large tenders, and jetskis. In addition to an 18-crew member capacity, it also serves as accommodation for up to 14 extra crew and service personnel.

The vessel’s hulls are occupied by a multitude of service spaces including those for waste management and treatment, tech stores, laundry, workshops, and stores.

The vessel was designed to meet or exceed IMO Tier III emissions guidelines. An onboard treatment plant cleans all wastewater discharged to a drinkable quality while wet and dry waste are also fully treated onboard to allow the vessel to operate with a zero discharge policy.
