AHMD designed the new 24m South Class range of the catamaran CTV collaboratively with Due South Ltd.

According to the company, the design began with the original South Cats range designed and produced by South Boats (Isle of Wight) founder Clive Jeffrey.

“I’ve known John Kecsmar (naval architect, AHMD) since we first met in the late 80s at FBM Marine where we worked very closely together,” said Jeffrey.

“We have always remained close friends and it seemed only natural to join forces together again to continue the close working relationship to create the mk II South Class of CTVs at AHMD.”

The new South Class range of CTV catamarans is available in a range of lengths and workboat codes carrying up to 12 or 36 technicians under the HS-OSC code.

They can also have varying duties, payloads and speeds designed to suit individual customer requirements, Ad Hoc Marine Designs said.
