A Fast Daughter Craft (FDC) is to operate away from the mother ship or offshore installations for extended periods of time. Its primary function is search and rescue.
Effective search and recovery requires an FDC with excellent reliability, manoeuvrability and seakeeping abilities. Dutch Special Marine Group's designer, Pieter Meuzelaar, took the proven hull of the company's Fast Rescue Craft © 903 (used by the KNRM), but enlarged the beam and reshaped the bow area to obtain more bow height.
