                Jump platform for transfer of personnel to/from Boat Landings by Swing Ropes:

                The Hand Rails are removable.

                This one has an adjustable Jump Platform on Stbd. Quarter:

                Raised and lowered by hydraulic cylinders at each corner.

                Access to the platform when raised looked a little "home made":

                    Two Generators are in a separate compartment:

                    Surprisingly they are placed athwart ships , not longitudinally as normal. (Not very good for heavy roll, or for list.

                    Compressors in the next compartment:

                            Here is another Crew/Utility Vessel, the FOS Leo (FOS = Fast Offshore Supply) This one is even larger, at 60 m. LOA and was designed and built locally here in Singapore. It is also operated by the same company who built it. It is a Multi-purpose vessel with FiFi 1 and DP 1 class notations.

                            I didn't get any good pictures of the FOS Leo externally, but here is her sister ship, the FOS Virgo:




                            And FOS Polaris:
