Kanoo Shipping has launched the first of its new series of fast crew supply boats, the Kanoo 40, at Fujairah in the UAE.

The Kanoo 40 can carry 35 passengers as well as ship stores, spares and provisions along with repair equipment and lubricants.

The boats will operate in the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea region and will offer customers a larger capacity to carry cargo while optimising costs, according to the company.

Kanoo Shipping operates in 19 countries and in over 200 ports in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent.
