SWATH@A&R – AN IDEA ON THE RISE
Visit company profile: Abeking & Rasmussen
For thousands of years ships have been firmly anchored in human identity. They have benefited and advanced the human kind in countless ways. And yet all along this amazing journey seafarers have been plagued by seasickness, an incessant and relentless nausea caused by the ship’s rolling and rocking. Many experts have tried to find the remedy for the persistent ailment, but always with moderate success.
That is, until Abeking & Rasmussen took up the challenge in 1999 in their usual, intense way and set new standards in on-board comfort and seakeeping with the development of the SWATH technology. Since then, the shipyard delivered almost 30 extremely accomplished SWATH@A&R (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessels that owe their success to one groundbreaking advantage – stable and calm voyage even in high and stormy seas. With the innovative technology the shipyard won accolades across the shipbuilding world and took its rightful place as the world market leader in this highly promising industry sector.

Video Thunder Child II fly past in appreciation of our Front-line workers
At Safehaven Marine it was great to be able to launch a new pilot boat for the Port of San Ciprian in Spain after nearly 2 months of Lockdown. She was nearly finished at the start of the lockdown. It sure was nice to be on the water again, even with social distancing.
We wanted to do something nice to lift everyone's spirits during these challenging times around the World, so we did a fly past our home Port of Cobh in Thunder Child II (Safehaven’s Transatlantic record attempt vessel) in support of all our front-line workers, doctors and nurses, the coastguard, fire, ambulance and rescue services, police officers, port operatives, seamen, pilot boat crews and marine pilots, as well as all those involved in keeping the global supply chain working. Here’s a little video we made, the sound track of David Bowies ‘Heroes’ says it all!
