New generation of Swath

24-06-2014 12:00:00


Danish Yachts A/S from Skagen has launched their fifth 24-meter Swath vessel made of carbon fiber. The vessel, which is second generation, used to transport personnel and spares out for offshore wind farms. The second generation has been enhanced so that the safety and comfort of passengers and crew, is improved.

"We are very excited about the launch of our second generation Swath, which we believe will exceed our customers' expectations in terms of safety and performance. We are pushing the boundaries of design, innovation and improve carbon fiber production techniques to improve safety standards for crew and passengers while at sea on our vessels, and we will continue to do," says Patrik von Sydow, CEO of Danish Yachts.

The weight has been reduced by 15 percent compared to the original design, which improves fuel efficiency. The wheelhouse has also been amended so that it now has full view of 360 degrees, which is an advantage when you're at sea and must moor at windmills. The latest Swath vessel was built for the energy company E.ON, but before it is delivered to E.ON, it must first undergo a trial run.

Danish Yachts has already started to build a new 32-meter Swath to the oil and gas industry.
