I confess to a fascination with unusual vessels which that use creative design to push the boundaries. This BAR Tech 30 offshore Support vessel, operated by Seacat Services looks like a good example.
The efficiency of long thin hull forms are well understood, combined here with the stability offered by an asymmetric multi hull configuration has created a vessel which compared to more conventional contemporary vessels offers significant fuel efficiency and by consequence reduced emissions.
I also confess to being a fan of aluminum construction which has a functional aesthetic. The asymmetric configuration uses the BAR Technologies’ patented Foil Optimised Stability System (FOSS) improving pitch and roll acceleration, which presumably equates to improved crew comfort and safety
