Strategic Marine, a shipbuilder for the oil & gas sector, has launched the Jati Seven, its first ever Offshore 40 Generation 3 crew boat being built for long term customer, Dinastia Jati.
According to Strategic Marine, Dinastia Jati is an oil and gas services group based in Malaysia and the Jati Seven is the first in a series of three 3rd Generation vessels being built for them.
The launch of Jati Seven represents the culmination of several years of evolutionary design and production, the company has said in the press release.
The company further notes that the launch of this vessel also marks a new benchmark for the most efficient crew boat in the market for its class.
The company has explained that this Generation 3 vessel retains the major features of the Generation 2 version whilst increasing cargo carrying capacity, fuel efficiency and improved sea keeping.
Reece Newbold, Head of Group Business Development at Strategic Marine said today: “This vessel marks an important chapter in the design and construction of our crew boat range and highlights the strong relationship with Dinastia Jati and indeed the overall Malaysian crew boat market. We are excited to introduce a new bench mark to the sector.”
