A multi-role workboat designed primarily for heavy load carrying, crane operations and towing/pushing. This vessel is also ideally suited to port services, buoy maintenance, dredging support, pollution clean-up, diving and general marine construction works. The Meercat M18 offers impressive load carrying capability due to its extended hull depth. The wide beam contributes to significant stability reserves, allowing for heavy lifting capacity with the onboard crane. A two-tier superstructure and extensive space below deck, allow ample space for welfare facilities and accommodation. The upper-tier wheelhouse provides excellent visibility of the working deck and for safely manoeuvring the vessel. An engine room, mess room and workshop/store with standing headroom allows for increased comfort below decks.
