'Koh Russey' 8.8M Aluminium Landing Craft

The team at Sea Speed are proud to announce the delivery of their new 8.8metre Landing Craft ‘Koh Russey’. Koh Russey is an 8.8 metre, high speed aluminium landing craft built by the SeaCat Ships team in Thailand, arrived at her home port in Sihanoukville, Cambodia last month.   She was delivered by road from Ocean Marina Yacht Club via low loader to the Thailand/Cambodia boarder where the duty-free customs process then took place (SeaCat Ships provided Form D). She then drove the rest of the way by sea, on her own hull to Southern Cambodia to begin life in her new home. See Video

At present this sturdy, multipurpose vessel is now carrying workers and provisions to and from the Island resort of Koh Russey (hence the vessels name) to the mainland. She replaces the old fleet of fishing boats that previously did the job and took between two to three hours travel time per day. The new barge carries the staff at more than twice the speed and half the time, as well as arriving and departing directly to the work sites, via the beach landing. As soon as the resort is complete, she will be having a slight refit and will then be used for Tours and Island transfers for hotel guests.


The award-winning design of this heavy duty, aluminium plate barge model is approved by the Australian commercial vessel standards, NSCV Class 1D for a passenger vessel. This is the fifth landing craft of its kind produced by SeaCat Ships. This landing craft design is a customer favorite due to its versatility, stability and speed. As a result of its popularity, the sixth version was recently completed and is available for immediate purchase! They are both the latest stylized versions with a 6mm plate shell and have the capacity to hold either 32 passengers on side fold-down seating, 2.5 tonne of cargo or a medium sized pick up truck. Koh Russey is powered by single 200 h.p. Suzuki 4 Stroke Outboard engines, giving a fully loaded top speed of 25 knots however twin outboard installation is possible.



We are proud to announce that this design has been selected as Best Landing Craft by Work Boat World for 2019.    ’.
