M.P.V. Chili Dog

New to the Thames in April 2017 the Chili Dog is an ideal multicat for working in reduced depths or restricted air draft (low bridges) as she is only one metre draft and four metre airdraft.

Despite her low draft her huge deck area and load capability are impressive, and she also boats long spuds for mooring and moving, ideal for diving, survey and site investigation works as there is a moon pool housed on the vessel too.
