Long John (2018)

The next generation Crew Transfer Vessel for both the Oil & Gas and Renewable Market

Long John is made of Carbon Fiber, which makes her stronger and lighter. With the installed Motion Roll and Pitch Control (MRPC) system, she has reduced pitching during offshore transfer operations. The MPRC system will increase the Safe operational weather- window to up to 2-meter significant wave height. Transfer of personnel is safety assured with a unique SOFTBOW engineering concept. The SOFTBOW concept reduces the risk of damage to the offshore installation and increases the Safety of passenger transfers. With her outstanding speeds between 30 to 35 knots (depending on load), we transfer passengers to their work areas faster and more safely.
