Broker's Comments

Surveyed in 2015, this vessel could fulfil any role demanded of her. Built to the highest standard, as demands a government specification and initially built as a cable layer, she could be nonetheless perfectly suited to the service role in support of wind farm operations.

She has been fitted out as a dive support vessel as well with her dive lift, a 2 tonne A frame and a 3 tonne deck winch, a further 3 winches allow her to be positioned precisely over a target.

She has a commodious interior and a large wheelhouse. A powerful bow thruster and a multi output generator set that is approximately 60kva output coupled with 8 batteries.

Her current owner tells us that she helms comfortably in any seaway and she is powered by super reliable Mercedes twin engines producing a beefy 360hp each.

This ship is a multi role investment. She could fit your requirements like no other service vessel.
