SB Lynx Commercial Catamaran 13-16 metres
Download General Arrangement PDF
  • A 16 metre fisheries patrol vessel for Northumberland Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (NIFCA).
  • SB Lynx design incorporates all the lessons learnt from earlier boats and from catamarans built at the yard in the past.
  • Hull shape is the latest thinking in fuel efficiency and sea-keeping, and is designed for either conventional propeller propulsion or waterjets.
  • The vessel has the strength and stability to carry out Wind Farm Support Vessel duties when required.
  • She has enough buoyancy to allow large fuel and water capacities to give the long range required in the North East region of the North Sea.
  • The extra buoyancy allows greater load carrying capabilities than conventional designs either for cargo or survey equipment.
  • Room in the hulls to provide at least four berths, a galley, a heads compartment and a workshop and store space.
  • Minimum noise and vibration levels considered throughout the design process.
  • Experienced design team from Goodchild Marine, Alicat Marine Designs and Lochin Marine
  • Vessel can be built between 13 metres and 16 metres for a variety of roles including survey and patrol duties, and windfarm support.
