Grey Wolf is fitted out with equipment and machinery specific to the requirements of a modern Expedition Motor Vessel. A vessel fit for purpose requires the right equipment, well maintained with many redundant systems to help ensure safety.
The vessel has numerous redundant systems. All key systems have at least a secondary system, and usually a tertiary system. In the event of a major failure of one or more systems we can still manage to safely navigate. For example, there are 3 separate steering backups. We have dual ECDIS systems, this Merchant Navy level navigational technology provides a very high level of navigational data and systems integrity.
SIMRAD: Argus Commercial Radar, VHF, Auto Pilot, Steering, ECDIS, Depth Sounder, MARETRON: Complete systems monitoring, SAILOR: 6000 Series VHF/MF/HF, ZF: Throttle Controls, ECHOMAX: Active Radar Reflector, FURUNO: Forward Facing Radar, FLIR: Infrared Camera.
Grey Wolf has one of the best engine rooms available on a sub-24m boat, providing ample room for engine room checks, maintenance and repairs. Twin 235hp John Deere engines power Grey Wolf through the water with ease due to the very efficient hull design. This hyper efficient hull means we can run the engines at lighter loads for general cruising, which ensures high economy cruising, low noise and vibration. The engine room is very well insulated to ensure minimal audio and heat transfer to the rest of the boat.
Grey Wolf is equipped with a 300 litre / hour Water Maker. The Webasto water heater provides plenty of hot water for showering and laundry. We have large grey and black water tanks so that the vessel can operate in sensitive environments with no waste leaving the boat. to ensure minimal effect on the marine environment. Should there ever be an issue with an engine, we can cruise happily on one engine, and we can even do this for ultra efficient fuel conservation situations.
