I am not sure on her specifics, I will find out. She mainly just keeps on eye on the fishing fleets around Tasmania and South East Victoria on the Australian Mainland. She has a permanet crew of 5 but can accomodate 12-14. She is very noisy though when she is idling.

A serious looking vessel.
How fast is she?
Nice photo, despite the sun not working with you
