Take our proven Sea Rescue 9.3m vessel, make a few modifications and you have the Sydney Ports hydro-graphic survey vessel.
In survey to USL class 2C for 6 special personnel, this boat will do tasks from navigation maintenance to fire fighting, with the ability to tackle the seas outside the heads with ease.
Launched in mid 2008, after a detailed build by Axiom Alloys, the vessel has proven itself to be incredibly capable in a variety of roles on and around Sydney Harbour.
The foredeck has been modified from the standard Sea Rescue version, with the electric anchor winch recessed below a flush mesh walkway.
Sydney Ports are adding an on-deck fire pump with piping running from the pump location on the aft deck, up to the bow.
In addition, they have added a functional set of stairs with safety grab rail, which will make all bow operations safe for the crew.
“The vessel has the ability to respond off-shore in all but the worst conditions. The craft was selected because of its trihedral type hull, which provides a stable platform, whether stationary or underway.”
