ROGUE has just completed a complete conversion by Ocean Voyager for offshore remote exploration with a focus on efficiency, speed, range, reliability and water access. Her unique huge aft deck is characteristic of all Ocean Voyager’s conversions allowing for storage of multiple tenders as well a fantastic outside living area with easy and practical water access. ROGUE was also conceived to be self-reliant, with clear access to all mechanical functions of the vessel. A major effort in the conversion was also into building a vessel with a large solar array that can be at anchor without the constant usage of the generators, a self-contained waste treatment system, as well as economical, and reliable engines for a fantastic cruising speed with low fuel consumption. ROGUE’s paramount feature is her 8 ton deck crane. This is unheard of in a vessel in her size, allowing the launching and use of large tenders. The 25’ Safe boat has a range of approximately 250nm with reserve. This feature greatly increases the vessel’s ultimate range for extensive research and exploration of areas not accessible with a large vessel.
The vessel is built entirely with high strength marine grade 5083 alloy and 6061-T6 framing for maximum stiffness and 3 foot transverse frame spacing and 1 foot longitudinal spacing. The plating is 5/16” thick under the waterline, ¼” for hull and decks and 3/16” for the superstructure. Additional framing and thicker plating were used in higher loaded areas such as engine beds, deck and mast supports and major bulkheads. This vessel was originally built for the waters around Newfoundland and Labrador where ice is common into July. The vessel is not ice classed but was built with this environment in mind.
The hydraulic system is driven by two independent variable displacement load sensing hydraulic pumps driven by the main engines, as well as a 220V AC electric pump for back up. This ensures efficient, reliable and on demand power steering, bilge and blast pumps, the anchor windlass and tender crane. The system has been designed to reduce the possibility of single point failure and easy maintenance using simple parts and duplicity.
