                          That should suffice to show what one of these vessels looks like from the inside.

                            After details from a modern MPSV let me introduce you to an other type of vessels widely used in the Offshore Oil & Gas industry, the Crew Boat cum Utility Vessel.

                            These vessels were first developed for service in the Gulf of Mexico in the 1960s. Their purpose was to carry crew and light supply to/from the rigs and platforms, which was all within a relatively short distance from shore at the time.

                            Over the years they have become larger but with little change in basic design and equipment, unlike the original Supply Vessel cum AHTS, which was changed when European, especially Norwegian yards got into the act.

                            Originally the standard Crew Boat was built from aluminum, 60-70 ft. long, with two engines, fixed pitch propeller and two spade rudders. As they grew larger the same basic hull form was maintained, but to keep the speed at around 18-20 kts. an additional engine and propeller was added. Larger still? Add more engines, propellers and even rudders.

                            The one presented here is 170 ft. (52 m.) long and has 5 Main Engines, 5 propellers and 3 Rudders. Otherwise it is much the same as the original GOM Crew Boat. Built in the US in 2000 and originally US flag.

                            Her she is at a small shipyard in Singapore:

                              The equipment in the Pilot House as it is called, is also very little changed from the original.

                                The aft position also have the Bow Thuster control:

                                Since it is driven by a separate Engine, the alarm panel for that engine is also here.
