  • WAVECRAFT™ Voyager 38 X is a seagoing innovation, designed to reduce transit time, improve crew and passenger comfort, safety and efficiency, expand operational envelop and reduce logistical cost.

    Voyager 38X incorporates proven air-cushion catamaran and Surface-Effect-Ship (SES) technologies with a sophisticated motion control system, which compensates for vertical wave motion, offering comfortable transit and safe access to other vessels and installations offshore. The vessel may be outfitted with a gangway and a SeaSpyder personnel transfer system. With a sleek composite hull design and optional smart interior layout that offers modern facilities, such as a meeting room, refreshments lounge, quiet zone with reclining chairs, tv screens and other modern amenities, Voyager 38 X is optimized to deliver uniquely comfortable transit for up to 150 passengers and crew of six.

    With max speed of 55 kn, excellent seakeeping capabilities even in high sea states and superior fuel efficiency and hence low environmental footprint, the new Voyager 38X offers reduced logistical costs per each far from shore transfer, effectively servicing multiple platforms in a single transit.

    WAVECRAFT™ Voyager 38 X can be delivered in accordance with all major classification societies, and is compliant with USCG and ABS A1 HSC Crew boat, “Circle E” + AMS + DPS-2 classifications. Applying the latest in high-speed diesel engine- and SCR technologies, Voyager 38 X meets stringent environmental standards and is compliant with USCG EPA TIER 4 requirements.

    “Voyager 38 X implements intelligent design and state-of-the-art technology to offer new standard for offshore crew transfer, directly competing with helicopters on levels of safety, comfort, fuel efficiency and overall reduced cost of offshore logistics. We are pleased to offer our latest innovation to the global Oil & Gas sector, and are especially excited to enter the US market with purpose-designed technologies to meet EPA TIER 4 standard”, said Are Søreng, VP Sales & Marketing at Umoe Mandal.

    (Note: Some design features and performance indicators may vary for the global and US Voyager 38 X versions.)

  • WAVECRAFT™ series - Voyager 32
    Voyager is a new-generation service vessel, designed for high-speed transfer of crew. When the distance from harbor is far and the operational weather window is narrow, Voyager craft offer a long-range, economical, commercially feasible and safe alternative to helicopters.

    Based on proven surface-effect ship (SES) and air-cushion catamaran technologies, robust, lightweight composite hull, combined with an active vertical motion damping system Voyager 32 offers excellent seakeeping in high sea states, passenger comfort, significantly reduced seasickness, superior fuel economy (l/nm), low wake wash and reduced environmental footprint.

  • Commander 27 high-performance CTV
    Commander 27 series delivers greater access to offshore installations while increasing productivity of the operations and maintenance teams and maximizing operational availability....

  • Commander 27 series is a highly-sophisticated class of composite vessels specifically-designed for the medium to long-range transportation of personnel to offshore wind farms. Commander craft are designed to operate at almost twice the speed and wave height of other equivalent vessels on the market.

    Like all WAVECRAFT ™ series, these high-speed vessels are based on proven surface-effect ship (SES) and air-cushion catamaran technologies using an advanced ride control system (RCS). This offers excellent seakeeping and passenger comfort. Commander craft are also fitted with a unique boarding control system (BCS ™), which significantly reduces heave and pitch motions, enabling personnel to safely and simply access a turbine in sea states of up to 2,5m Hs.
