120′ x 44′ dimensions. The history of the vessel is that it has been out of service for about ten years. It was last operated about five years ago for sea trials for a potential sale.

The vessel is the first advanced high-speed SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) with a proven track record that was utilized to carry passengers in support of exploration and production of offshore energy resources.
She has been docked in freshwater. Since the vessel has been stored at Shipyard, owners have performed routine monthly startups of all machinery and systems, routine drydock inspections with two re-coating of the hull paint over this time frame, routine anode replacement and the climate has been maintained in all climate-controlled spaces while in storage with her onboard HVAC system. There also have been numerous system upgrades and repairs done to the vessel while stored in our care.
This vessel has great potential and there are several operations the vessel can perform or be converted to perform such as Fast Crew/Supply for Energy Exploration & Production, Support of Offshore Construction & Maintenance, Fast Passenger Ferry, Dinner Cruise Vessel, Sightseeing Vessel, Oceanographic Research Vessel, Pilot Vessel or Private Yacht.
These can be ran in very rough water, and still be comfortable for the passengers. Longer distances can get expensive with fuel consumption.
Turbines were serviced and ran a couple years back.
