UK-based Seacat Services has taken delivery of Seacat Weatherly, the first example of a new class of crew transfer vessel (CTV) designed by Chartwell Marine
Following completion at the Diverse Marine shipyard in Cowes and successful sea trials, Seacat Weatherly – a Chartwell 24 design – has commenced its first charter, with an unnamed client on a UK offshore wind project.
The first of two vessels of the type ordered by Seacat Services, Seacat Weatherly has innovative features including a new hull design, large foredeck and safety features such as step-free access, sliding handrails and unrestricted visibility from the wheelhouse.
This has been achieved while making use of many of the same components and equipment as its sister vessels in the 13-strong Seacat Services fleet, to maintain operational familiarity and ensure effective management of spares and inventory.
Seacat Weatherly’s sister vessel Seacat Rainbow is currently under construction at Diverse Marine in Cowes and is scheduled for acceptance in September.
