That Damen 2810 by Tiver21 on YouTube

Files are 1:144 scale.
Prints up nicely at 1.5x scale to 1:96 scale.
But there is a "hole" in the tip of the bow that I had to patch.

Took a while to source the right size crown gears.
I finally selected C202A and C152A as good options for inside the pods.
I ended up with a random 15mm crown gear on the top of the drive due to shaft sizing issues, and
having extra of those, cut that interior pinion gear out to and used it inside the pod.
This was all due to using 2.38mm brass rod for shafts.
 
The motors are 3000rpm N20, but that 3000 rpm is low, luckily they are okay on 12v so should manage around 6000rpm.

This progressed fast.
The files were optimized for a resin printer, so the support structure for
the pilot house looked like I has printed a brick. Breaking the support
structure away also broke the mullions for the pilot house windows.
 
No worries though, I know how to build models.  %)

A spot of paint cleans everything up.  :-)

I understand the Damen 2810 to be 28.67m long so the files are for a model 200mm and yours is 300mm?
Knowing very little about 3D printing, but knowing a little about your high modelling standards, I am watching this with interest.

You have the sizes right. I am  building 1/96 scale so that I can bully a friends battleship.
I did get the tug wet, and it needs a bit more power. I will try running the model on 12 volts and
see how that goes. I may need to change the propellers. I have also reprinted the deck house using
light weight PLA, that took off 14 grams so maybe the battery won't sink the model.
 Now that I am detailing, I am thinking how to hinge the mast and about lights... Oh no weight...  %)

Ah, Something I skipped over, the 1/96 scale fendering was done for another modeler, Eric, for
his shapeways kit. The master parts were all turned on the lathe, and then molded so I could
produce the soft rubber parts. There were some tiny tires also.
 For the Damen 2810, I will also be using some tiny 2.5mm "D" fendering I made for an Offshore PSV.

The safety rails are about 11 mm tall.  :o

The railings are done, and I have a good start on the mast.

Mast mostly done up. Still wondering if I should do lighting, and
pick up a smaller battery to lose more weight.

Putting in tiny windows.  %)

over the front wind screen are 5mm LED ground down to look like deck lamps.
Mast is in paint, and waiting more tiny LED.

The power is much better on 12 volts, but I think new propellers. And a ballast shift to stern.
Also, the power is very scale, in that this little tug had to work to move the battleship.
Rick let his ship drift off the dock, and it probably too the little tug a half hour to bring it back.  {-)
It was only about three ship lengths, battleship lengths, about 9 meters.  %)
