The Alya McCall is likely the biggest, the most powerful and the fastest single-hulled, combination supply and crew boat to be launched to date. Some of the impressive numbers: 206 by 33 feet, 100 passengers, five 2680 HP Cummins engines, five Hamilton jets, 38 knot speeds. Mike Aufdermauer, Marine Sales and Engineering Leader for Cummins Mid-South LLC, the engine supplier, explains that, “the boat is powered by five EPA Tier 3 certified QSK60-M propulsion engines rated at 2680 HP each. It is also equipped with three QSM11-DM auxiliary generator sets rated at 290 kW, during sea trials the vessel proved to be capable of running at 38 knots.”

The Incat-Crowther-designed vessel was built at Louisiana’s Gulfcraft Shipyard with at least one sistership to follow. They are equipped with Dynamic Positioning 2 and ride control. As of November 16, the Alya McCall was nearing Malta in the Mediterranean on transit to Dubai for customer acceptance trials and will be on contract in Saudi Arabia later this year.
