This is the first of the new larger Wave Handler design from Alnmaritec. At just over 12m she is 2m longer than the previous Wave Handler boats and with 1000bhp of installed power she packs a powerful punch indeed. She is fitted with Twin ‘Trakor Jets’ from North American Marine Jets designed specifically to give her an exceptionally high bollard pull for line handling work whilst retaining all the advantages of a water jet propulsion package on the boat. She has a 2 tonne hydraulic capstan and a 5 tonne tow post with quick release hook on the spacious aft working deck and she has a bow landing platform for personnel transfer. She has a spacious air conditioned wheelhouse with seating for up to six passengers and two crew as well as a WC and she is fitted with a water drench deluge system for rescue work. She will serve in Line Handling duties at a bulk carrier terminal in Western Australia where she joins a sister vessel from Alnmaritec already successfully operating in the region.
