After success with sales of its 8m, 11m and 15m ProZero vessels for the aquaculture industry, Danish boatbuilder Tuco has now launched a new 12m ProZero model in the fish farming markets.
The new ProZero 12m site-management boat is basically equipped for tough offshore missions and built on the reliable and extremely seaworthy ProZero hull platform.
The boat's large aft deck can, of course, be configured with cranes and winches according to customers' specific wishes and can further be configured to accommodate a wide range of single and twin-engine propulsion options.
The cabin is flexibly mounted to ensure low noise, maximum comfort and vibration protection for the crew, even at high speed sailing.
“This is a boat that is efficient where a large catamaran does not meet the need to get out quickly to the facilities to carry out smaller cargo deliveries and service tasks, but where there is a desire for a fast and efficient boat with a low fuel consumption and low total operating costs”, said General Manager of ProZero Norge AS Kjetil Nygård. “Boats built in composite can withstand chemicals such as disinfectant much better than aluminium and steel. Further the boat has been developed in close cooperation with the industry and is very efficient, so we have great confidence in the potential in the market.”
