HMAS Shepparton

I wonder how many people in the Goulburn valley and Shepparton region realise that we have our own Navy ship aptly named HMAS SHEPPARTON. The ship usually operates in a pair, as it is frequently paired with its geographical and maritime mate HMAS Benalla. The ships carry out hydrographic survey operations in the shallow waters of northern Australia. Their twin hulls provide good stability in heavy conditions, and good living room and space below the main deck. In addition, the catamaran hull sits well out of the water, the ship drawing only 2.2 metres - a favourable characteristic in shoaling and reef waters where the ships are required to operate. Each SML carries the latest in navigation aids, and survey and computerised hydrographic data processing equipment. The crews of 15 a few years back marched into the city of Shepparton, and were stopped by the Shepparton mayor at the time Anne McCamish in some sort of traditional symbolic stand off.
Launched: 5 December 1989 Commissioned: 24 January 1990 Displacement: 310 tonnes Length: 36.6 metres Beam: 13.7 metres Main Machinery: 2 X Detroit V12 diesels Speed: 11 knots Ship's Company: 15 Range: 3500 nautical miles
