Irish builder Safehaven Marine has been awarded a contract for the construction of a new self-righting search and rescue (SAR) craft for use by the Faroe Islands Rescue Service.
The vessel will be the second in a series that Safehaven will build for the same operator. The first SAR craft, Sverri, has been in service since 2013.
The new vessel will have an LOA of 14.9 metres, a moulded beam of 4.1 metres, a draught of 1.35 metres, and two Scania D13 484kW engines that will deliver speeds in excess of 30 knots.
