The US division of naval architects Incat Crowther has announced the delivery of ‘Alya McCall’, the first vessel in a fleet of new class monohull Fast Support Vessels (FSV) for Seacor Marine.
Alya McCall is the first vessel in the Seacor Express Plus class and features striking lines not ordinarily found in traditional monohull FSV designs. Gulf Craft in Franklin, Louisiana, constructed the vessel to its usual high commercial quality standards. The vessel features seating capacity for 100 personnel and has an impressive top speed of 38 knots.
The performance is enabled by a quintet of Cummins QSK 60, EPA Tier 3 compliant diesel engines, each producing 2680 bhp. The engines are coupled to Twin Disc MGX 61500 SC reverse reduction gearboxes that drive Hamilton HT-810 water jets. A cardan shafting system by Driveline Service of Portland connects the gearboxes to the waterjets.
