The boat’s main engine is a Doosan 4V222TI 800hp coupled to a ZF gear, and has high spec JRC and Simrad navigational equipment installed.

The boat is also equipped with WESMAR hydraulic bow and stern thrusters with an autopilot interface, and a TMP 300L Marine Crane is also fitted.

Safety gear was supplied by Viking Life-Saving Equipment.

The Cleopatra series are high-speed fishing boats, designed to withstand the rough seas and weather conditions of the North Atlantic Ocean and is made of glassfibre reinforced plastics (GRP), according to the rules and regulations set by the Nordic Boat standard.
