2x Volvo D16 750hp Speed max: 23.5kts @ 1960rpm (80% of 3,500L fuel load) Speed cruise @ MCR: 21kts @ 1800rpm (80% of 3,500L fuel load) Stern gear: Shafts Duplex SS 62mm dia, 30" dia 4 blade. NIAB pendant hung rudders & 'P' bracket The vessel is fitted with twin Volvo D16 engines and provide the vessel with a 23kts maximum speed @ 1900rpm and an 19-20kts operational cruise speed at 1750rpm with a 75% fuel load. Fuel capacity is 3,500 litres and allow for a 1,400 nautical mile range at displacement survey speeds of 8-9kts. Onboard 230V AV power is provided by a pair of Fisher Panda 'I' series linked 15kw generators providing a 30kw combined power output of the i-range variable speed units. These are variable speed units are electronically linked together operating in tandem, only one unit works when under lower loads with the second unit starting only when load demands it, RPM is varied according to load with the units running at faster rpm when full load is needed, the variable speed sets ensure that the engine is always correctly loaded and this in turn delivers really good fuel savings, lighter in weight and size, longer service intervals and extended engine life. The vessel is suitable for hot climate operations and is fitted with two powerful 27,000btu and one 16,000btu unit, (70,000btu total) the main and upper cabin roof as well as the lower cabin, under deck roof areas are insulated. A powerful 500mm dia Axial fan provides forced air into each engine room, with hot air exhausted through separate mist removal vents. Volvo D16

To facilitate her long duration capabilities, the vessel has two sleeping cabins, one in the lower port hull and one in the st/bd hull, each fitted with 6x bunk berths and each cabin with its own separate heads compartment. A full galley is positioned in the f/wd port hull and is equipped for extended sea operations, fitted with a large capacity 240V fridge freezer, dishwasher, 240v hob and microwave, large worktop areas and storage. A third large heads and shower compartment is positioned in the st/bd f/wd cabin and here is incorporated multiple storage lockers and a ac 240v domestic washing machine / dryer. Long duration voyages are made possible by the 800 litre fresh water capacity. A 600 litre black water tank is fitted.

The main cabin is a twin deck arrangement with a raised steering and navigation position. Seating is provided for a helmsman and navigator, both on shock mitigation suspension seating, with 2x additional bench seats either side. The raised position allows excellent all round visibility and control of the vessel with a full suite of Raymarine navigation equipment including 48nm radar & 12" C127 colour display, GPS, plotter on 2nd 12" display, sonar 2x VHF DSC radios, Raymarine autopilot, Raymarine graphic display fishfinder, AIS, all flush mounted in a large helm console. The main cabin incorporates two areas, the f/wd area houses the main hydrographic work area, incorporating a U shaped worktop with computer racking below, space for multiple computer screens and is fitted with three fixed seats. AC sockets run along the table top and below, trunking for data cables to the aft deck is provided and data cables run, hatches allow the temporary running of cables to the sonar deployment system on the aft deck. A dinette area with settee and table is positioned opposite. The aft area houses an additional survey work area with work table, twin fixed seats and computer racking below with multiple AC outlets and space for computer screens.

Deck arrangements
The deck arrangement has an 'island' cabin configuration with easy access around the vessel protected by high bulwarks and railings allowing safe operation on deck. Access to the raised foredeck is by twin steps port and st/bd with the area protected by railings all round. The aft deck is specially designed for hydrographic and survey operations. A large moon poll of 1.5m x 1.3m is fitted with a hydraulically operated multibeam deployment system capable of raising and lowering transducers and equipment up to 1,000kg in weight to below the keel level. A large 1.5m diameter tension drum of 1,000kg pull capacity and is capable of being pre-loaded with 200m of large 32mm dia electrical data cable and deploying equipment over the transom. 3x spare drums are carried onboard stored on the cabin roof and can be interchanged on the winch when required. The transom is fitted with a wide central gate allowing access over the transom and is fitted with a tilting 'A' frame with a 1,000kg SWL hydraulically operated by two large hydraulic cylinders allowing equipment to be lifted off deck and lowered over the transom. The transom is fitted with twin substantial dive platforms accessed from their own ladders allowing access to the waterline to assist equipment deployment and recovery as well as dive operations. Additional means of deploying multiple sonar and hydrographic equipment is provided by 2x swing down 4" diameter aluminium transducer poles on substantial gunwale mounted bearings which lock into place securely when lowered and position the transducer below keel level. They are raised and lowered by manual winch. The deck is serviced by a powerful HIAB 029 hydraulic slewing knuckle crane which has a maximum lifting capacity of 470kg at 6m reach and a maximum lift of 2,900k

Build standards.
The vessels hull construction has been designed in accordance with Lloyds Special Service Craft rules and regulations for category 'workboat' and area of operation 'G3'
The Hull design has been approved by the Polish Register of Shipping and the M. C. A.
The vessel is built in respect of its machinery and safety equipment under survey and to the UK'S MCA workboat regulations category II, 60nm offshore and supplied with an MCA workboat certificate on delivery. A Polish Resister of Shipping hull survey certificate will be supplied.

The Wildcat has been designed from the beginning to combine safe dependable sea keeping and stability with performance and economy. The Wildcat hull design utilizes 'high buoyancy bows' incorporating much fuller fwd sections, offering greater buoyancy and giving the hull the necessary lift to prevent slamming on the bridge deck, allowing higher speeds to be maintained into larger ocean swells. The hulls are a hybrid design between semi displacement and planning hulls, symmetrical multi chine in form. The main chine deflects water out and away from the hulls having a two-fold effect. On the outboard chine this improves ride dryness and reduces wetted area. On the inboard chine the spray is turned so that in waves it provides a cushion effect. The spray is mixed with air coming down the tunnel and creates a high-density medium, which dampens motions through waves. The likelihood of slamming on the bridge deck is greatly reduced as a result of the hull riding on this high-density spray cushion. A second chine situated 400mm higher than the main chine and further aids in boat dryness, especially at lower speeds when the main chine is mainly immersed.
