Workstar 10m Line/Hose Handler workboats

10m line/hose handler workboats, developed for Varun Shipping, to be built in Southern Africa and for deployment in Angola in the offshore/inshore oil industry services sector.

They are used either as FPSO/AHTS daughter craft capable of being lifted on and off a mother ship or on in shore terminal support operations. The 10m asymmetrical catamaran designs have keel protection, all-round substantial rubber fendering and are very robustly built to be capable of dealing with the rigours of in-field operations.

The line/hose handler workboats may be customised to provide both the size and capabilities of the vessel required by the owners and are supplied as fully comprehensive kits of profiled 5083 H-111 marine aluminium and T-60 series extrusions to ship and boat builders worldwide.
