Vard Marine is pleased to announce the VARD 1 311 design was awarded Ship of the Year at the 2015 International Workboat Show last week.

The ABS class vessel has an overall length of 302’, beam of 64’ and a design draft of 20’-4” that results in a deadweight capacity of 5300LT. With the ability to carrying almost 300m3 (77,920 USG) of LNG, this permits full operational capability for one week on gas fuel.
