That might be a little slow to keep up with a CSC, but the NorCan 222 is similar in size but has a max speed of 34 knots (economical speed of 27 knots) and a range of 5,000nm. And it's a company in PEI that says it delivers first ship in 20 months from signing of contract.The sailors of Newfoundland Marine Services?

The Concept of Operations the Dutch are proposing for this Optionally Manned Vessel is that it will sail in close proximity to a Mother Ship. The TRIFIC ships will sail in company with Mother and I suppose the crews will be housed in Mother with only short term accommodation on board.
The vessel then become a very large sea-boat that keeps pace with Mother rather than being swayed or floated aboard.
Ultimately the crew may only go aboard for maintenance, supervision of firings and to keep any Marines aboard company.
