SINGAPORE Centus Marine Sdn Bhd. has contracted Strategic Marine (S) Pte Ltd. to build two 42-m (138-ft) fast crew boats (FCB).

These will be the fifth and sixth vessels built by Strategic Marine for Centus.  

Both FCBs are scheduled for completion in 2Q 2021 and 4Q 2021, respectively. This design is a customized solution developed in close collaboration with Centus Marine to meet its operational needs.

Propelled by three Cummins KTA50 engines, the 42-m FCB will cruise at 30 knots and can reach top speed of over 31 knots. The design is fully compliant to Petronas’ requirements.

Crew comfort and safety is another major consideration for Centus Marine which is reflected in the interior arrangement of the vessels. The accommodation area features 12 berths in seven cabins and can comfortably accommodate up to 100 personnel onboard. It offers spacious business class recliner seats, dedicated luggage racks, a large, incorporated deck storage and wide, efficient walkways to facilitate crew transfer amid demanding offshore conditions.
