Some operators have specific experience and therefore preferences for certain types of propulsion components including engines, gear boxes, and propulsion systems eg. water jet or propeller systems.
Auxiliary machinery systems also include dive air storage/compression, air-conditioning, navigation equipment, galley fit-out or safety systems to name a few.
Any or all of these maybe included on the dive boat or liveaboard we find for you.
However a number of these systems can be easily included or modified should the perfect liveaboard be found and require further auxiliary systems to meet the purchaser’s specific needs. We have the expertise to advise in these areas. Depending on the effort involved this maybe a fee for service arrangement which we will negotiate up front.
We have been developing design/build packages for passenger catamarans high speed ferries with proven options with one of the top designers and have combined them with a builder here in Australia to provide high quality, operationally efficient, competitive new build vessels. Current programs using this package are underway.
Analysis of performance requirement can add profitability when deciding what vessel is required to meet your market and operations.
A variety of useful techniques are employed in military and high end commercial platforms that can be readily adapted for commercial ferry fleets.
