Four 18m Crew Boats for Bue Marine - "Tobal" "Daryn" "Naryn" "OB"

Custom designed 18M High Speed/Low Draft Crew Boats part of a five boat order for the Caspian Sea.

All vessels were purpose designed by Sea Speed Pty Ltd in conjunction with the experienced owners Bue Bulkers to meet the challenging conditions of the Kazakhstan oil fields. Special features include low draft of 900mm for the 18 metre / 50 pax Large aft’ open work deck with additional strength to enable load carrying activities. Strict zero discharge capability for environmental considerations. The top of the range work place safety standard and state of the art electronic equipment.

“Bue Ob” "Bue Tabol" and "Bue Naryn" are the standard 18 metre/50 passenger crew boat catamaran. Powered by twin cat C18 engines (680 h.p.) and doen 220 waterjets the vessel has a top cruising speed of 27 knots.

“Bue Daryn” is a slightly larger and faster version of the 18metre/ 50 passenger crew boat catamaran. Powered by twin cat 3412 engines (1100 h.p.) and doen 220 water jets the vessel has a top speed of 32 knots.

In order to meet the owner’s contract requirements and in a race against time to get the boats up to the Caspian before the only access closed due to the winter icing over, we undertook to ship “Bue Naryn” and “Bue Daryn” in a semi completed stage and finish in Baku.

New wave sent the construction squad to Baku to complete the vessels, the team of 10 to 15 men plus 10 local azuri laborers took a total of 14 weeks. Other Australian companies to assist with the project in Baku and send men were Doen Waterjets and TMQ Marine Electronics and Lloyds Australia.

The vessels were delivered to the Sipan wharf at SBS facility at Premorsk, south of Baku. They were then loaded on to trucks and moved to the vacant shed which was then set up to build. Work commenced in trying and sometime freezing conditions. “Bue Naryn” was completed first and trucked down to the wharf and craned into the water. On arrival for first sea trials early the next morning the vessel was covered in 2 inches of show. Sea trials were very successful in the 1.5 to 2 metre conditions with the catamaran handling well with speeds up to 32 knots. Bue Daryn followed 2 weeks later.

These 18m vessels were built to Lloyds Register +100A1 Passenger Catamaran G3 HSC UMS (150 nautical mile operation)
The five boat order was successfully completed in 15 months and on time, on budget.
