BN181 Clo­sed Valen­tijn 2000 class

The Rigid Infla­ta­ble Boat (RIB) con­cept is appre­ci­a­ted more and more all over the world and their pur­po­se and tas­ks have been sig­ni­fi­cantly exten­ded. HABBEKÉ SHIPYARD has fur­ther devel­o­ped the VALENTIJN class RIB into a mul­ti­pur­po­se ves­sel for res­cue, eva­cu­a­ti­on, ambu­lan­ce ves­sel, inspec­ti­on ves­sel and crew or pilot tender.

The lar­gest devel­op­ment is the clo­sed wheel hou­se and lon­ger ves­sel that makes the ves­sel more com­for­ta­ble and pro­vi­des more shel­ter. The ves­sel has 16 seats and 4 stret­chers. It’s a cate­go­ry A ves­sel and self-righ­ting that makes it an “all wea­ther boat”.

The first ves­sel of this type is used off­sho­re Mau­re­ta­nia, Afri­ca, as res­cue and eva­cu­a­ti­on ves­sel by Woodside/Petronas

The­se ves­sels are built accor­ding to the standards and rules of the Ame­ri­can Bureau of Ship­ping (ABS X A1 HSC.AMS).
