Construction C859 (called Shuttle 200) is a work boat – Fast Crew Boat (FCB) for offshore service, for the transport of special personnel and small amounts of goods on offshore installations and ships, with hydro-jet propulsion and a classification International Navigation.
The boat is characterized by a main deck free from about mid-ship towards the bow, to allow the load of small goods and the operations of special personnel embarkation / disembarkation through a special raised platform on the end, which is compatible with motorboat and platform landings. The crew boat has a control deck with wide windows on 360 °, slightly elevated compared to the superstructures for personnel that develop from the center of the ship to the stern. The wide visibility allows to operate safely and easily in marine installations and facilitates the approach to other major vessels.
The Shuttle 200 can carry out fire rescue thanks to a dedicated motor pump and a monitor for fire service (Fi-Fi) installed on the sides of the wheelhouse for a range of intervention on all sides of the boat.
The machine is equipped with 2 engines MAN D2842 LE413 parallel to the ship center, connected to the HAMILTON HJ422 water jet propulsion on the transom by a transmission with universal joints, all arranged in order to optimize the propulsive performances.
The hull is specially designed for aft propulsion with water jet propulsion. The bottom has been tested in tank in order to optimize the speed in different load conditions to grant its purpose in quick transfers. The boat is of planing type with a variable-geometry sharp chine, with a deep “V” for an excellent sea hold and greater maneuverability, with support shoes (aft plate) and a 20 ° raising angle of the bottom.
