Tuco sells another 8m Full Cabin service boat to Norway

Tuco Marine Group, the specialists in light structures and hulls manufactured with composite materials such as carbon fibre, has sold another ProZero vessel.

The 8m Full Cabin Service Boat will be outfitted and utilised as a fast and flexible dive boat for fish farming service and construction works in Norway. The boat will be delivered summer 2018 and is set up specifically for fast utilisation of divers to the fish farming and construction industry.

The boat is designed and optimised to serve as a platform for dive operations, but operations will also include, crew transfer, underwater inspection and research, repair and maintenance of machinery, structures and recovery of sunken assets and will be delivered to Fiskå Undervannservice AS through ProZero Norge AS

In addition to the spacious driver and control cabin, the boat is equipped with well-organised working decks. The cabin protects the crew against the surrounding environment, enhances comfort and provides ideal work conditions for the operators. Powerful light projectors on the aft deck provide ample light when operations can’t benefit from the luxury of daylight.

The 8-meter ProZero vessel is delivered with a single inboard diesel engine and Z-drive and comes with all needed certificates for the operation to national regulations.

The 8-meter ProZero Full Cabin is delivered full spec, including dive panel and multi-use screen, air bottles and compressors. Sturdy railings and well-designed bow access are vital parts of the deck layout which also features a raised aft deck that functions as a full beam work platform for the crew. The aft-deck features also features a secondary control station for steering and controlling the boat from the aft deck.

The ProZero 8m hull provides for a stable ride, even in rough seas where most vessels must surrender. Fast operations in rough seas are only limited by human constraints.

The ProZero boats are all available in multiple versions, all of which are carefully tailored to suit particular user requirements. The cockpit layout in the workboats is arranged to maximise the use of state-of-the-art operations management and situational awareness electronic aids.
