HST Chartwell 24-1 (tbn) has been designed by Chartwell Marine and will be a hybrid vessel. The new Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV) is under construction at Diverse Marine in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

The catamaran’s unique hybrid propulsion system incorporates an electric motor alongside a diesel engine, which drive a high-performance changeable pitch propeller (CPP) system. At low speeds, this allows for silent, zero emissions operation, enabling the vessel to comply with port air quality requirements.

At transit speeds, it is able to perform capably and efficiently while ensuring the comfort of technicians. Its advanced hull form, high bollard push (19.6 tons), and superior bow height ensures confident transfers at high wave heights.
