As an extension of its existing relationship with Netherlands-based Damen Shipyards, Metal Shark is proud to offer the new Damen FCS 7011 for the U.S. market. Developed by Damen in response to feedback from leaders in the offshore oil and gas sector, the FCS 7011 has been designed to reduce logistical cost and increase efficiencies in an era of low oil prices, utilizing smart design and the latest technology to bring new levels of comfort, safety, and efficiency to the offshore sector. The vessel has been designed to comfortably and safely carry crews at high speeds through heavy seas, with the range and capacity to service multiple platforms on a single trip. The FCS 7011 can easily access deepwater rigs off the continental shelf, delivering personnel refreshed and ready to work. The vessel utilizes Damen’s “Enlarged Ship Concept,” where the hull of a ship is extended to create an elongated hull form that substantially enhances seakeeping, operability and crew comfort by reducing vertical ship motions. The “Sea Axe” bow design represents a further evolution of the Enlarged Ship Concept. Axe Bow vessels feature an extremely slender and deep bow, without any flare, that provides unparalleled soft seakeeping characteristics.
