Incat Crowther is pleased to announce the delivery of Shadow Cat HODOR.
HODOR is the first in the Shadow Cat range that brings Incat Crowther catamaran capability to the yacht industry. The platform offers incredible amounts of deck and storage space, flexibility, stability, efficiency and capability. The design offers a stable platform for the safe transfer of guests from helicopter to the mothership, via tenders.
Design and naval architecture was by Incat Crowther, project management and technical consultation by Robert Smith of YCTS and construction by Astilleros Armón at their Burela shipyard in Spain.
HODOR has been completely customized to carry the specific equipment and supplies to support and enhance the owner’s mothership capabilities. The design uses the robust engineering of hulls proven in offshore platform service, such as the SEACOR CREWzer class and Incat Crowther 70m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) class. The hull incorporates a reverse bow, a deadweight capacity of 240t and a low propeller draft of 3.1m.
The platform accommodates an astounding number of toys, facilities and personnel. This includes five tenders (the largest being 56’ / 17 meters in size), jet skis, quad bikes, a submarine garage, a helipad, a large complement of crew, staff and support equipment.
The tenders and submarine are flexibly located and can be launched from the upper and main decks; the upper deck via the two large knuckle boom cranes, on the main deck via twin beam cranes . . .
