Catamaran Patrol Vessel

Lady Meghan Patrol Vessel

Lady Megan, a 19m Catamaran Fisheries Patrol Vessel designed and built to a demanding specification. Built by Mainstay Marine for the Welsh Government, Lady Megan is a robust and versatile vessel that packs immense functionality into its modest platform and is designed to operate year-round in the harsh conditions of the Irish Sea.

The aft working deck of Lady Megan is the epicentre of this functionality, featuring a hydraulically operated tender launch and recovery system, capable of launching and retrieving a 5m RIB whilst the vessel is in motion in Sea State 3. The main deck also houses a pot hauler, deck stores, capstans and a deck crane for unloading large items such as quad bikes.

The upper deck wheelhouse features excellent 360-degree visibility.

The vessel is classed to BV rules.

We have put MIT gearboxes in many of our vessels in the past and were more than happy to use them again for these vessels. We have always received great customer service from MIT, Mel Lewis, Sales and Marketing Director at Mainstay Marine
