3011-CTC | LabCat

Small enough to be highly maneuverable, yet large enough to accommodate your team and equipment, the 3011-CTC is an ideal vessel for surveying in near shore situations. Outfitted with a davit, engine guards, and stern mounted A-frame, cargo can be deployed and retrieved through either the port side boarding door or the walk-through T-transom. Ergonomic workstations and an onboard head inside the cabin keep scientists comfortable, as racks hold sensitive gear secured and stable.

3211-CTC | LabCat

Contact Sales

When retrieving samples or gear from the water, sterndrives are excellent at staying out of the way. Combined with a swim step and an A-frame mounted on the transom, scientists can work alongside their payload without fear of colliding with an outboard’s upper unit. A “moon pool” on the aft deck of this 32’ vessel allows survey equipment to be lowered into the isolated water between the catamaran’s twin hulls, providing accurate readings and measurements. Inside the cabin, a head, small galley, workstations, and berths for two enable longer trips at sea, and less time away from the survey zone.
