Coral Wind is a versatile work boat. First & foremost she is a superb survey boat.
Her tremendous stability coupled with her central moon pool, A-frame, deck winch and a crane has given Coral Wind a well deserved reputation as an excellent survey platform. She has worked around the UK for a number of clients including the Admiralty.
She is also used for some crew transfer both ship to ship and ship to tower – using the bow fendering arrangement.
A low freeboard coupled with gates on the transom, the A frame, winch and crane, give her the capability to deploy and recover moorings and buoys with ease. She can do grab sampling
In addition she had been used for Dive operations in conjunction with the Royal Navy, and others. We regularly launch and recover ROVs from the boat as ROV operations is one of our specialities.
