EL BOTALÓ. All-purpose Catamaran

EL BOTALÓ

Aquaculture

“EL BOTALÓ ”is the name of our all-purpose steel catamaran, which sports a 20.8 m overall length, 7.5 m maximum breadth and 3 m moulded depth. This is the first model constructed by MONTAJES CANCELAS specifically for aquaculture. Launched in April 2005, the El Botaló has been equipped with all the necessary rigging for efficiently working onboard.

CHARACTERISTICS

The deck allows the movement of four tanks, each one with a capacity of five metres, for transporting juvenile stock to floating facilities and for mounting cages or performing maintenance tasks. The tanks are equipped with an oxygen diffusion system to ensure fish survival and a bioscanner for counting during transfer to the boat.

Likewise, it is equipped with a system for classifying or calibrating the various examples depending on their sizes. This ensures that they pass through the various tube circuits to their destination.

The “EL BOTALÓ ” model is equipped with an extendable and foldable crane with a lifting capacity of 5.4 tonnes at 4.41 metres and a maximum reach of 9.9 metres.

The cabin is entirely covered in glass and designed for precise manoeuvring at all times with its double helm, allowing control facing towards either bow or stern, as required.

Its engines can each reach 220 horsepower and, together with the 57 kW electric generator, provide the necessary power for all onboard activities.
