1.2 Design and Attributes

i. Vessel Layout:

The vessel is laid out to include a fore peak anchor tank, one sleeping cabin with two bunks, one toilet room, one shower space, one medical equipment storage room, one small galley space, one temporary medical treatment bed room, one mess room and one machinery room in the hull while the deckhouse is laid out to accommodate the ergonomically designed console station, six crew seating and spacious crew maneuvering space as per stated in the GA drawings.


ii. Hull Form:

The hull form is well proven and will be double-chined, deep-keeled, variable deadrise deep V planing form incorporating with a fine forward entry, flared bow, wide and slightly down-angle chine flats, lifting strakes/spray rails, planing flats and low L/B ratio on the main chines. The bottom lines are semi-planing in form and will slightly rise up from the forward towards the stern.


iii. Strong Bow Protection:

The bow will be structurally reinforced to enhance abrasion resistance and then to be outer-fixed with heavy-duty rubber fendering in order to ensure that the bow structure can absorb all loads/impacts transmitted and to give good seagoing abilities, ensuring extremely strong protection.


iv. Attributes:

The vessel will be designed to provide the following attributes:

1) Shall be sea going and capable of undertaking sea voyages under its own power at

any design loaded condition and draught.

2) Shall be capable of working in juridical waters, regardless of sheltered, unsheltered or open seas with waves upto Douglas state five.

3) Shall offer stable platform with all-around manuevering quality on the whole deck.

4) Shall be applicable for good day helm visibility.

5) Shall have good manoeuvrability in all defined conditions and low noise at all speeds.

6)  Shall offer a structural life span of 15 years under normal operations and reasonable

maintenance, allowing for 1200 running hours of average annual usage with

unlimited operating hours/ day. 


v. Operation Conditions:

The vessel and equipment package will be suitable for operation in tropical weather conditions in the western African sea, detailed as below:

Ambient Air Temp.: Max 52 deg. C

Salinity: Max 42 ppt

Seawater Temp.: Max 35 deg. C

Relative Humidity: Max 90%

Simultaneous extreme conditions: 42 deg. C & 85%RH

As special note, max. speed at open throttle may be slightly reduced due to impact to performance in max. power output of the two main engines when at extreme weather with sea water temperature higher than 35 deg. C.


1.3 Compliance and Survey

The vessel is to be surveyed to latest Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Lloyd’s Register, notated as Special Service Craft, Patrol, G3 Service Group.

As such, the vessel will be designed and built for patrol mission in restricted service area of waters with reasonable weather as defined by Lloyd’s Register, and generally the range to refuge is no more than 150 nautical miles in winter. 


Furthermore, the vessel shall comply with the requirements of main class for stability purposes of the Lloyd’s Register “Rules for the Classification of Special Service Craft” applicable to G3 navigation zone.


For purposes of structural design the worst intended conditions will be defined as 1 m significant wave height at 34 knots cruising speed, or maximum lightweight speed in 0.4 m significant wave height, whichever is the more onerous condition.


As preliminary only and subject to final approval by purchaser, the statutory rule is designed to follow MCA MGN280 for Small Vessels in Commercial Use, Operation Category Area A1 which covers same navigation zone as defined by G3 Service Group of Lloyd’s Register, also equal to navigation zone covered by GMDSS Area A2.


The Builder will appoint an approved Surveyor to carry out survey inspections during construction and testing as per Survey requirements.


1.4 Quality and Control

The shipyard is accredited to ISO 9001:2008 which is certified by RINA and CCS, both are  members of International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
