Incat Crowther announced the delivery of Shadow Cat HODOR, significant in that it is the first in the Shadow Cat range which for Incat Crowther.

Design and naval architecture was by Incat Crowther, project management and technical consultation by Robert Smith of YCTS and construction by Astilleros Armón at their Burela shipyard in Spain.

HODOR was customized to carry the specific equipment and supplies to support and enhance the owner’s mothership capabilities, and the design uses engineering of hulls proven in offshore platform service, such as the SEACOR CREWzer class and Incat Crowther 70m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) class. The hull incorporates a reverse bow, a deadweight capacity of 240 tons and a low propeller draft of 3.1m.

The platform accommodates an astounding number of toys, facilities and personnel. This includes five tenders (the largest being 56-ft.), jet skis, quad bikes, a submarine garage, a helipad, a large complement of crew, staff and support equipment.

The tenders and submarine are flexibly located and can be launched from the upper and main decks; the upper deck via the two large knuckle boom cranes, on the main deck via twin beam cranes and the main feature of the vessel; the aft lifting platform for the 56-foot chase boat. A portable davit on the fore deck facilitates the launch and recovery of the vessels ROV and can also be used for additional jet ski storage.

Propulsion is provided by two main MTU engines, giving a max speed of 22.5 knots, or long-range cruising at 14 knots up to 5500nm. The catamaran platform allows fuel savings of around 40%, affording the full vessel range with only 160,000 liters of diesel fuel. The vessel’s tankage supplies toys and vehicles with jet fuel, petrol and diesel from dedicated bunker stations.

Fitted with an exhaust cleaning SCR system for IMO Tier 3 and EPA Tier 4 compliance, greenhouse gas emissions are significantly reduced, allowing the Incat Crowther 66 design to be more environmentally friendly.
