The directors and employees of CSL were present for the ceremony. The ambulance boats have an approximate length of 22.5m, beam about 6.0m and a maximum speed of 14 knots. The vessels, designed in-house by CSL, will be of high quality & fuel efficient. CFD analysis and model test at IIT Madras was done to optimise fuel efficiency and firming up the powering requirement. 3-D modelling of the entire boat has been done in-house to improve ergonomics and layout.

The vessel will be able to accommodate two patients and will have a crew capacity of seven, including the paramedical staff. The vessel will have various paramedical facilities like examination and nursing room, medical beds, mortuary freezer, refrigerator and medical lockers. There will be a Jason’s cradle to safely rescue people from sea. The ambulance boats will be used for the rescue and instant treatment of fishermen in distress as well as normal patrols.

The vessels are due for delivery in early 2020.
