US-based SEACOR Marine has received two new CrewZer-class catamarans known as SEACOR Puma and SEACOR Panther.

Designed by Incat Crowther, the vessels were built by Astillleros Armon in Spain to transfer personnel and equipment to offshore platforms.

Powered by four Cummins QSK95 main engines, the vessels can travel at a maximum speed of 42k. The boats receive electrical power from two Cummins QSM-11 generators and a deck-mounted standby genset, while a pair of retractable bow thrusters improves on-station manoeuvring.

The DP-2 American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) vessels also feature improved fire-fighting equipment and have 30% more deadweight capacity than their predecessors.

"Passengers are provided with large reclining seats, which are fitted with privacy partitions, reading lights, and device charging ports."

While they are certified to carry 150 passengers, the vessels are only equipped with 76 seats and an overnight crew cabin. Passengers are provided with large reclining seats, which are fitted with privacy partitions, reading lights, and device charging ports.

The ship’s main deck features a hospital, a utility room, a self-service café bar, and four passenger bathrooms. Modern surfaces, furnishings, and LED lighting has also been installed to provide comfort.
