Tornado

An aluminium catamaran designed to remain at sea for extended periods

Overview

In 2015, CWind added two 23m LoA and two 26m LoA aluminium catamarans from Aluminium Marine Consultants (AMC), a shipbuilding and consulting company based on the Isle of Wight to the fleet. The new, larger vessels have boosted our fleet’s capability and enhanced our ability to serve client requirements.

CWind vessels can be chartered on their own or in combination with a range of our other service solutions.

The 23m Tornado incorporates 20-ton cargo capacity, large 14,000 litre fuel oil tanks and the ability to carry 2 x 10’ containers. Combined with above-deck accommodation for 3 crew and 12 passengers, the vessels are able to remain out at sea for extended periods of time.
