Esvagt standby rescue vessel retired after 39 years in service

Esvagt Bravo

Danish operator Esvagt has retired one of its oldest active vessels, the standby rescue vessel Esvagt Bravo.

The 35-metre vessel was one of the first to join the Esvagt fleet in 1981.

In addition to having been utilised as a rescue vessel, Esvagt Bravo was also used for training and had thus served as a starting point for many of the crews who would later deploy on the larger vessels in the Esvagt fleet.
