Once again, the fleet of Acta Marine has been expanded with a new multicat of the type Eurocarrier 2209. The newly built vessel, named “Coastal Fighter”, was handed over to Acta Marine. After the naming ceremony, the Coastal Fighter immediately set course to the Dutch Province of Zeeland for her first assignment, offering assistance for several months at a beach replenishment project.
The Coastal Fighter is the fourth multicat of the Eurocarrier 2209 type in our fleet, alongside a number of other multicats. In this workboat, all the experience accrued with the first three sister vessels has been taken into account. The Coastal Fighter differs from its three sisters in terms of its larger engine capacity (1,520 bhp), an extended area of operation and an improved wheelhouse.
“Multicats” are versatile workboats that are mainly deployed at maritime infrastructure projects, providing a variety of support functions like towing, handling of anchors and pipe lines and supply activities.
