The WHEELHOUSE is placed at the most forward position and elevated above the accommodation area for maximum visibility but externally leaving a small walkway ahead of the bridge for access to a manual lifting arm, capstan winch & anchoring equipment, etc... Access doors to the bridge (P&S) hinge outboard. The wheelhouse has a central helm console with radiated instrumentation within the full width console area and some instrumentation above. To starboard is a survey desk for PC and monitoring equipment (not included) with pedestal seat and storage with a companionway aft on the port side.
A companionway (P) leads down into a MESS ROOM / GALLEY area and this area extends to the after- deck area on the same level with a central exit door through the rear bulkhead. A HEADS COMPARTMENT is accessed externally on the starboard side via the rear access door.
Externally, the vessel has walk-around accommodation with engines accessed through deck hatches (P&S) of the superstructure. A small ‘A’ frame is available at the transom (currently demounted) with a deck mounted electric capstan adjacent reportedly used for light lifts, sampling, etc. (max 1 tonne). A further capstan winch and lifting arm are located forward.
The wheelhouse mounted mast houses the radar scanner, working lights and antenna, etc..
The hull has been re-fendered with heavy section 'D' section with interstraking along both sides and the jets are protected by platforms serving as boarding areas when moored stern to.
