Vessel Type: USL 1C (23+2) Dive Barge

We developed these custom designed specialist barges for an Australian Eastern States based company, who specialize in underwater drilling and dive support.
Utilizing the heaviest commercial stern drive legs from Konrad USA and coupled to the well proven Yanmar 6 cylinder engine, these twin 370 HP barges have a sprint speed in the mid 20 knot range and the ability to carry a ‘troop carrier’ style SUV vehicle.
The bow ramps are mechanical, raised and lowered by simple electric winches.

This vessel is set up to essentially carry up to a dozen divers with their support equipment at medium speeds for fast jobs.
In slow mode it can carry several tonnes of deck cargo.
