    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:
