With such high demand for CRC vessels this year, we have expanded our fleet. CRC are still awaiting the delivery of Galaxy, our flagship 15m MCA Cat 1 wheelhouse Rib, but whilst waiting, we have been busy shopping.
CRC Atlas, an 11m Ribcraft wheelhouse Rib will be being sea trialled at the end of this week. She is fitted with twin 300hp Suzuki outboards, coded for 12 passengers to MCA cat 2 and fully enclosed with heating and the latest suite of Garmin electronics. We are very exited to see how she performs, watch this space to see our reports.
With her large aft deck and forward bow loading steps, she will be ideal for almost all sorts of work.
In addition to CRC Atlas and Galaxy, CRC Tempest, an 11.5m Delta wheelhouse Rib is due to arrive with us at the end of November following an extensive re-fit at Goodchild Marine in Great Yarmouth. She has brand new Yanmar diesels, a pair of Hamilton jets and brand new electronics. She is a little different to our usual boats as she is fitted with a full 3 man dive spread with comms and TV. Not only will she act as a DSV, she will be available for all of our usual services.
Keep reading over the coming weeks to see how we get on with both sea trials.
