Commissioned by the University of Auckland as a Research Vessel but Hawere’s specification was driven by many different needs. The result is a relatively fast, multi-purpose workboat with large deck spaces, easy access to the water and accommodation facilities to service eight researchers and a professional skipper. The vessel currently conducts a diverse range of research work, is chartered to local government organisations and other research agencies to maximise utilisation and claw-back costs. The laboratory’s operational requirements included everything from estuary surveys to extended dive trips to the exposed Three Kings Islands. The Kings are situated 30nm north west of Cape Reinga and are washed with strong currents and the changeable conditions in the area can produce vicious seas.
Hawere is also an excellent Dive Support Vessel.
Hawere provides for full operational deck, capable of dealing with the most difficult tasks.
Powered by twin Caterpillar 3126 marine diesel engines developing 420 hp each and coupled to ZF 286A gearboxes, driving four blade propellers, which provide a service speed of 18 knots and maximum of 24 knots. Hydraulics power the main winch in the cockpit, a warping capstan that also services the overhead gantry, a pot hauler on the starboard side and the anchor windlass. Hydraulic backup is also provided by a 240v hydraulic pump powered by the 7.5kw genset. The back-up pump also drives the on-board dive compressor.
Hawere provides very comfortable & practical accommodation, for researchers, divers or fishermen.
The accommodation area is open plan, with plenty of headroom and natural light provided by three overhead hatches and ten fixed hull ports. The vessel’s toilet, shower and wet-lab facilities are located off the cockpit. The bridge seats six passengers plus the skipper and a pilot berth is provided in the port, aft corner.
Berths are in a bunk style with plenty of room and storage. A full stocked galley provides all the cooking features of any modern home. The Galley has a TV and video suite for relaxing in the evening or any pre-operational briefs.
Guests can kick back and listen to the skipper's selection of great music.
