Mohasuwei was built to Class in accordance with the Large Yacht Code. This presented MSA Surveyors with a starting point to make application for a Certificate of Survey and Certificate of Operation as a Domestic Commercial Vessel (DCV). After an initial condition survey, MSA were able to give the client a comprehensive report detailing the requirements and what classes of operation are achievable.
MSA then completed all of the required surveys to achieve Class 2C and 1D operations as a DCV.
The vessel surveys included the commissioning, engineering, electrical, load line and light ship assessment. The vessel is also operated with a 10m RHIB Tender.
Launched in 2009, the Mohasuwei underwent a major refit in 2018 and boasts superior engineering which includes a planing GRP hull and GRP superstructure. Her elegant Cantieri di Pisa designed interior features multiple living spaces including a large main salon with two separate zones and a cinema room complete with day bed and surround sound system.
Powered by 2 MTU (16V2000 ) 2,399hp diesel engines and propelled by her twin screw propellers, she is capable of a top speed of 22 knots, and comfortably cruises at 15 knots. Her zero speed stabilisers, which work at anchor, increases on-board comfort when the yacht is stationary, particularly in rough waters.
Along with Captain Matt Conroy and his crew of 4, the Mohasuwei can accommodate a further 10 guests in 4 luxurious guest suites and can comfortably host up to 36 guests for day and event charters. From her large teak sun deck, passengers can take in the beautiful panoramic views offered by her home port of Sydney Harbour while the shaded beach club offers easy access to the water from the comfort of her large swim platform.
Managed by the Sydney-based brokerage, Ocean Alliance, the Mohasuwei is in pristine condition and sets the standard for Super-yacht Charters in Sydney. She is available for charter in Sydney harbour, Pittwater (north of Sydney), the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef.
An Initial Survey is the inspection of a vessel, generally for the first time, to assess and approve its design and construction against the requirements of the NSCV or other standards that apply under Marine Order 503 (Certificates of Survey National Law) 2013.
Our initial marine surveyors will liaise with the vessel builder and designer to check compliance against the relevant survey standards to minimise delays, or prevent any last-minute headaches, to ensure a vessel is able to comply as a Domestic Commercial Vessel.
An initial survey comprises three phases:
Design Approval Phase – This includes the approval of design drawings for a new vessel, or assessment of an existing vessel structure, against design standards.
Construction Phase – This is the program of inspection during a vessel’s construction against the approved design. The inspections vary for each vessel and includes the inspection of welds, fibreglass laminate lay up, buoyancy foam, materials and equipment, and surveys during the construction of the vessel.
Commissioning Phase – The process by which a vessel and its systems are trialled and tested to ensure the vessel functions as designed and meets applicable standards. This includes trials and tests of the vessel and systems essential to safety, type of safety equipment, assessment of intact and damage stability, and reliability of on-board machinery.
