Sina Marine hull tries a new role

A Sina Marine-designed fast response boat has recently entered service in Singapore with its new owners. Although designed as a pilot boat, this 15.5-metre craft has taken to its new role like the proverbial duck to water.

Featuring all-aluminium construction Kim Heng 68 will be used to assist in the smooth operations of her owners’ extensive fleet of offshore ships and barges.

Although the design is typically used as a pilot boat, the owners have chosen to change the interior layout by removing the eight pilot seats and replacing them with two pilot seats and an L-shaped lounge and dining table.

A full review of Kim Heng 68 will appear in the October issue of Work Boat World magazine.
