CWind Hurricane

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. This vessel is the CWind Hurricane. Newer and larger than some of the other vessels in our crew transfer vessel fleet, they have boosted our capacity and enhanced our ability to serve client requirements.

An entirely new design, the 25m version of the CWind Hurricane incorporates 20-ton cargo capacity, large 18,000 litre fuel oil tanks and the ability to carry 2 x 20’ 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.

CWind Hurricane vessels can be chartered on their own or in combination with a range of our other service solutions, offering more flexibility and versatility to our customers.
