Burness C o r l e t t / S e a w o r t hy O f f e r Unique R O / R O / T a n k e r Design

The British naval architecture firm of Burness Corlett through their Sydney, Australia, office have joined with Seaworthy Systems of Essex, Conn., to produce an engineering package for shipyards wishing to bid on the U.S. Army Logistic Support Vessel Program.

Under the RFP the LSV must be based on an existing design and the Sydney office of Burness Corlett has designed a similar vessel, the Frances Bay, built in 1981.

Under the joint B-C/Seaworthy effort, B-C has reconfigured the Frances Bay to an LSV as shown in the above profile, and Seaworthy has redesigned machinery and related systems to USCG and ABS standards.

The proposed vessel has an LBP of 246 feet, a beam of 60 feet, with an operating draft of 12 feet.
