The Dutch company Damen have designed and built a series of elegant and purposeful crew boats, one of the earliest examples being the Junak, delivered to the Croatian company Brodaspas back in 2009. This one is 35 metres long and is powered by three Cats collectively offering 4200 bhp. Larger versions have been offered as maxi-yacht support ships, and I happened to notice that in the BBC series Blue Planet 2 one, which was provided with its own helicopter, had been used to find some particularly elusive shoals of fish out in the Pacific.
