The new Euroclydon, the latest crabber to carry the name that goes with a longstanding reputation for big trips and pushing at boundaries, has been carrying out sea trials ahead of delivery to its owners.
Built at Macduff, Euroclydon has an overall length of 17.40 metres with a 6.80metre beam and a 3.80 metre moulded depth.
The engines on board are a Mitsubishi package, with a S6B3-T2-MPTAW powering a 2000mm open propeller, and there are twin 98kWe gensets. Euroclydon has a Kort KT120 bow thruster.
The hauler is a 1.5 tonne Britannia unit and Thistle have supplied the landing crane.
