On the 12th of June, 2014 at our yard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam we had the festive Naming Ceremony of the Multi Cat 2712 ‘Fox Fighter’ including the delivery of the vessel to the customer Samba AS from Os (Bergen) in Norway.
The Multi Cat 2712 is the third in Samba’s fleet of workboats. Samba’s Technical Manager, Eirik Haugland, says “This new vessel will be a beneficial addition to our growing fleet. She is rigged to carry out mooring and maintenance work in the aquaculture industry and will also be used in the oil industry’s spot market. We are very pleased with the fast delivery of the Multi Cat 2712 from Damen, which included time for the vessel to be customised with our own specifications.”
According to Damen Sales Manager Norway in Stavanger, Mr. Remko Hottentot, the aquaculture industry can benefit from Damen’s standardised platforms for versatile and reliable workboats. “The Damen Multi Cat range is one of our most trusted and proven products, available for fast delivery from stock,” Remko says. “And this order shows client-specific personal touches are no problem. The vessels are highly suited to the aquaculture market, for carrying out day-to-day work such as transport of personnel/equipment and maintenance. These kind of workboats are our core business and we also have a very effective global service network.”
