ProZero 10.5m Archipelago workboat

 Tuco Marine hands over ProZero 10.5m WBW Archipelago workboat to Norwegian owners

The vessel is a fast and light multipurpose workboat that features a hydraulic bow gate and a deck crane for handling cargo over the vessels side. Constructed from the flexible and unique ProZero construction, the vessel is built with a flexible hung cabin to ensure the best possible comfort in the wheelhouse.  

The Vessel is to enter service in Bergen, Norway, for the local Archipelago services and has been sold through the Norwegian company, Provide Maritime, Florø, Norway.

The delivered vessel is as many of the ProZero vessels in Tuco Marines ProZero range, equipped with a flexible hung cabin, which is mounted on rubber shocks, to secure optimal sound dampening, and crew comfort inside the cabin. Two suspended seats, a passenger sofa, and a toilet ensures the very best traveling experience for the crew and passengers. On the aft deck of the vessel, a large heated locker is mounted, serving as a dry locker for the crew’s clothes and tools.

The design of the ProZero cabin ensures a huge amount of daylight, this also improves the personal comfort, and a sliding door secures that access to, and from the cabin, can be done with minimum obstacles for the people working on deck or walking past the cabin entrance.
The foredeck also features the engine room access, and a deck mounted tool box for the crew.

The light workboat is equipped with a Volvo Penta D9 inboard diesel engine and it is capable of doing more than 25 knots when transporting crew and passengers to or from the archipelago islands, which will be the boat’s main area of use.

On the foredeck the boat features a crane in starboard side, and in port side a line/trap hauler, and a side door for easy access to shore and water.The boat is further equipped with radio, radar, AIS and a VHF installation for optimal communication.

“We are really pleased with the performance of the vessel, and the high comfort level in the boat” says Jakob Frost, Product responsible at Tuco Marine Group. “The sailing characteristics, are just as good as we designed the boat to be, and the low weight of the vessel ensures the low fuel use, that we always give a high priority in our vessels”
