SURVEY 460 is a 46m long full GRP vessel dedicated to survey and scientific missions. Based on MAURIC’s expertise in the design of complex multi-mission vessel and large composite hull structure, MAURIC SURVEY 460 has been designed to optimize its seakeeping and manoeuvrability performances during survey operations . This sea-proven design, already in operation for French Ministry of culture for underwater archaeology (Alfred Merlin vessel), offers exceptional seakeeping and comfort at sea allowing to optimize her operability at sea. Her large strengthened aft deck and Carbon A-frame makes her a polyvalent multi-mission but cost-effective solution for the deployment of underwater vehicles (ROV or UAVs). Designed with a diesel-electric propulsion configuration perfectly adapted for Station-Keeping and Track-Keeping, she is equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System.
