Baltic Workboats of Estonia has launched a new oil recovery landing craft fitted with a wave-piercing hull.

The 18.6-metre-long vessel underwent sea trials shortly afterward, achieving a sprint speed of 25.6 knots.

Although built primarily for oil recovery operations, the landing craft will also have the capacity to carry five tonnes of cargo and accommodate 10 people on board. Its expected range is 350 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 20 knots.
