UAE-based Grandweld Shipyards said on Wednesday it has been awarded a contract to design and build another two 42M aluminum crew boats for a US-based yacht brokerage firm.

The deal with Global Marine follows the successful delivery of three 41M aluminum crew boats in 2011, Grandweld said in a statement.

The vessels are designed to reach a speed in excess of 26 knots, and feature crew seating capacity of 83 persons, and 104 sq m loading area for over 90 tonnes of deck cargo.

The boats are scheduled for delivery in August 2013, the statement added.

In addition to the two 42M crew boats to be built for Global Marine, Grandweld is currently undertaking the construction of more than 20 vessels including seismic support vessels, anchor handling tug supply vessels with DP2 capability, service boats, and crew boats.
