The WPCAT 52R is a high-speed wave-piercing aluminium catamaran built and delivered to the
Royal Oman Police. It has been conceived as a multipurpose vessel, specifically designed and
built for rescue and surveillance operations, and as such is equipped for dealing with ship
accidents, recovering of survivors at sea, fire fighting and coastal surveillance with regard to illegal
immigration, fisheries protection and anti smuggling.
Intermarine has delivered two Hydrographic Survey Vessels - Aretusa e Galatea - for the
Hydrographic Institute of the Italian Navy on 2002.
Such vessels have been tailored on the specific requirements of the Client: powered by a fully-
electric propulsion system (allowing to achieve a speed of 13 knots) and built in FRP, they have
been carefully designed and tested at the towing tank so to minimise the wake generation and the
radiated noise.However Intermarine, perfectly aware that every Hydrographic Institute has its own
operational and technical requirements, is available in implementing modifications to the basic
configuration in order to include those equipment/systems that each single final user requires to
have on board such a type of vessel.
