15 m Catamaran Workboat

15m catamaran workboat intended for aquaculture operations, specifically salmon farming, around the Faroe Islands. Owner requirements stated a continuous sailing time of just over 10 hours at a service speed of 8knots, on a single charge. Electric propulsion was the preferred option, resulting in zero fumes on the main deck in contact with crew, as well as low engine noise, a benefit for the crew but also for the fish.

Hull shape has been optimized through extensive CFD calculations to ensure wave-making resistance is minimized at the service speed.
