Shallow draft Crew Transfer Vessel hull build

New Shallow Draft Crew Transfer Vessel – Voyager

PRESS RELEASE: CRC announces new Shallow Draft Crew Transfer Vessel – Voyager.

Galaxy‘ was the first in class Shallow Draft Fast Crew Boat delivered to CRC in 2016.

Since delivery, ‘Galaxy‘ has been tasked on several major projects requiring both shallow draft and suspension seating for 12 passengers.

Based on the success of ‘Galaxy’, CRC have commissioned a sister ship ‘Voyager’ with delivery scheduled for April this year.


Shallow draft Crew Transfer Vessel plans


‘Voyager’ is being built in partnership with Ribcraft, Goodchild Marine and Alicat; three of the industry’s most respected firms.

Ribcraft’s commercial offshore, fast planning hull is being reproduced in aluminium by Alicat with the fit out again being provided by Goodchild Marine.


‘Voyager’ will be powered by Volvo Penta D6 engines coupled via Twin Disc gearboxes to Hamilton Jet HJ322 jets controlled by their Blue Arrow system.

With a draft of just 0.7m and the Blue Arrow system, precision positioning of the vessel in demanding situations is excellent.
