Yacht design and naval architecture

24m Aluminium self propelled barge launched


Working in conjunction with the builder, Bury design produced the design and certifying documentation for this versatile vessel.

24m in length and 11m wide the barge features a unique trimaran configuration below the waterline giving improved strength, resistance characteristics and protection for the four independent thrusters/drive motors. These hydraulic drive units, specifically designed and built by Commercial Catamarans, are powered by a single onboard diesel engine. The advanced control system allows for the vessel to be maneuvered by joystick in any manner, giving the craft great versatility without reliance upon a tender vessel.


Intended to be a series build, the first barge features a deck reinforced and certified to carry a 110 ton excavator and spud piles for vessel positioning in shallow waters. Futhure vessels are being configured for fuel lighter operations.
