Speedy and Steadfast Victory. Penguin Shipyard International has delivered its first Flex-50 Fast Supply Intervention Vessel to the Group’s offshore operating arm, Pelican Offshore Services. Christened “Pelican Victory”, the 50m DP1-classed FSIV is powered by four MTU 16V 4000 M53 main engines and equipped with Kongsberg’s Dynamic Positioning system. During her official sea trial, the Pelican Victory clocked a top speed of 25 knots with a hefty 150 MT deadweight. At lightship condition, the Flex-50 will easily hit 30 knots. At station-keeping mode during sea trial, the Pelican Victory remained steadfast and steady, even in rough seas. Introducing the Flex-50...the choice of champions!
It Just Keeps Getting Better. In 2014, Penguin Shipyard International will unveil the brand new Flex-40 series, successor to the best-selling Flex-38 series. The new Flex-40 model types feature expanded fuel tanks, larger deck space, a knuckle-boom crane, new reclining seats and a host of engineering enhancements. Whether you are fighting pirates in the Gulf of Aden or rushing critical spares to a drilling rig, the new Flex-40 series is the fast and furious solution!
Pocket Rocket. In September 2013, Penguin Shipyard International completed a successful sea trial for its debutante Flex-25, which hit speeds in excess of 30 knots while offering a stable and quiet ride throughout. The first two Flex-25 crewboats will be deployed in West Africa, which is fast becoming a Home Away From Home for the Flex.
Rise of the Flex. In June 2013, Penguin Shipyard International completed its 50th Flex crewboat, a Flex-38SL, for a Russian ship owner. Christened "Kirrie", the vessel will join a global deployment of Flexes, from Asia to Africa. With a build cycle of less than six months - from keel lay to end of commissioning - we are the world's fastest builder of crewboats. And with more than 20 Flex crewboats under construction in 2013, we are also the world's most prolific crewboat builder. Come visit us at the Home of the Flex!
