PDL Marine Limited win contract to supply a 15m Catamaran

PDL Marine limited based in Trafalgar wharf near Portsmouth received the order to build a 15m High speed Aluminium catamaran for a client in the Channel Islands.

After lengthy discussions to finalise the design to suit the client’s requirement for the vessel to be able to cover multiple roles the green light was given to go ahead. A lot of work and communication was had by the team at PDL, the client and the renown designer Roger Hill of New Zealand to ensure the vessel was perfect for the client.

The 15m Catamaran is fitted with A frame, large deck winch and capstans. Yet it can still cater for up to 17 personnel on board in one of its other roles, a remarkable feat for a vessel of this size which is clearly punching above its weight.

With a new range of vessels coming online and for more information on this vessel type, contact the office on +44(0)23 94 004832, sales@pdlmarine.com, www.pdlmarine.com

Fitted with Doosan engines the vessel can cruise at 22 knots with a maximum speed of 25 knots.

The team at PDL are excited to be chosen to build this vessel and adds to their healthy growing order books.
