The Vikosprint 12 offers an exceptionally wide and stable working platform. It is the smaller in the family of trimarans made by Vikoma. The vessel hull form is a carefully optimised trimaran.
Different load conditions have relatively little influence to speed. Fuel consumption is low allowing for smaller fuel tanks, better payload and smaller operation costs. The basic model of the vessel is not constructed for navigation in ice field, however, we have tested the trimaran hull in arctic laboratory and know that when the hull is properly strengthened, the 12m version can go in 10cm ice. The shape has been patented for navigation in ice conditions. The navigation ability in Nordic waters is an option.
The vessel has low wave making properties. The deckhouse is in the foreship leaving a flush and wide working deck of ~ 35 m2. The bridge is designed for single person navigation. There can be a co-pilot sitting next to the helmsman. A small sofa with table is mounted behind the pilots. A kitchenette is arranged on the bridge. The vessel can be outfitted for many different types of operations with optional equipment. For example, the vessel can be turned into an oil recovery version by equipping it with an integrated Sweep brush skimmer.
