We are proud to announce a new contract with South Boats IOW Ltd. and Alicat Workboats Ltd. for the delivery of a complete Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor system to a 23m wind service catamaran  (YN29) for Iceni Marine Services.


YN 29:


  • Diesel engines: 2 x MAN 12-1400
  • Engine Power/rpm: 2 x 1029kW@2100rpm
  • Gearbox: 2 x Servogear HD295, u-gear configuration
  • Propeller Diameter: 1225 mm


YN 29 is similar to Iceni Marines Iceni Venture, as well as YN 79 and 81, which is still under construction by South Boats and Alicat Workboats for Seacat Services


Richard Thurlow of Iceni Marine Services Ltd.: “Our existing 23m CPP vessel, ‘Iceni Venture’ has been offering our clients unprecedented levels of access to their assets, more than we could have imagined. In January, our client’s vessel motion and recording system registered safe transfers in 2.2m HSig with a passage speed of over 27kts in the same condition. Taking up this option, extending the superstructure and selecting CPP propulsion is a natural expansion of our vessel development and build programme to support the growth of offshore wind construction and operations.”


Ben Colman of South Boats IOW Ltd. & Alicat Workboats Ltd.: “We are delighted to confirm that this first option has been taken up and look forward to working with Iceni on what is a very exciting project. Once again, this vessel is to be built at Alicat Workboats in Great Yarmouth and is due to completion early 2017 with the intention of exhibiting at Seawork 2017.”
