Industry Database

Blyth Catamarans chose Seawork to launch its impressive new 15m Passenger Vessel, ‘The Island Ranger’ and has already received interest in further builds of the GRP catamaran which is certified to carry 110 people.

Visitors to the vessel were shown around the vessel which is coded to MCA Class 6, boasts twin decks to provide higher and clearer visibility at sea, and has twin Iveco 280 hp engines capable of providing up to 19 knots.

Stuart Davidsen, managing director from Blyth Catamarans explained: “The new vessel is for Dyfed Marina and will be used for safari trips in Tenby. Seawork is our only UK commercial marine exhibition and it’s great to be able to exhibit the new vessel here. We’ve had a really good day today and have had some interesting prospects already.”

With an enviable reputation within the industry for suppliers of stable, sea-kindly, value-for-money boats, Blyth Catamarans specialises in the design and build of GRP catamarans for commercial operators across a wide range of different industries. The company designs and builds customised work boats, working closely alongside clients to develop and deliver a boat unique to their individual needs, whether being used for charter, angling, diving, commercial fishing, passenger carrying, crew transfer or survey work.

‘The Island Ranger’ has been completely designed and built in-house from the ground up at Blyth Catamarans headquarters in Essex, resulting in a truly unique passenger vessel.

Blyth Catamarans is on berth VB26
