This Wave Handler 800 was supplied to Exxon Mobil to operate as a mooring line and hose handling workboat and is widely regarded as setting the benchmark within the industry for this role. She has a small wheelhouse with fold-away seating for six and a bow access arrangement is provided forward for personnel transfers. The aft deck is fitted with working platforms recessed into both the quarters and a ramp to facilitate hose handling with an hydraulic capstan built into a plinth on the deck.
