New pilot launches for Briggs Marine in Liverpool

Briggs Marine has ordered three ORC 171 Pilot vessels from Goodchild Marine, based in Great Yarmouth, UK.

The 17.63-metre vessels are destined for Liverpool where they will form part of an ongoing process of fleet renewal in one of Briggs’ long-term contracts.

The vessels are to be powered by twin Volvo Penta DMH 13 engines and the composite, twin chine hull is equipped with substantial polyurethane fendering arrangements.

Delivery is expected in 2017.
