This state-of-the-art vessel is a 4-legged, self-propelled, self-elevating, general service liftboat, named Jinshan 1, and is based on the SUDA 320-L4T. It was built by Triyards Marine for Swissco Offshore.

It is ABS classed with unrestricted service, A-1, AMS. The hull dimensions are 182ft by 114ft, 10in by 14ft, 9in., (55m x 35m x 4.5m). The quarters arrangement can accommodate 146 persons including crew.

The SUDA 320-L4 also has a generous cargo deck area of 950sq m.

This self-elevating unit is capable of working in water depths up to 246ft (75 m). It also has a CAP 437 heliport, capable of supporting a Sikorsky S76 or Bell 412 helicopter.

“Our designs have gained world-wide attention due to the fact that they do more for less. In some cases, they offer by far the lowest cost solution than any other designs in the world. This vessel is no different. It will compare favorably with any vessel of its size in the world. We are confident it will provide the owner a long and profitable service,” Ajay Suda, SUDA CEO said.

This vessel has been completed and is being delivered to its owners. This vessel follows on the heels of the 300 ft. (91.5m) truss leg liftboat delivered earlier this year.
