Norwegian crew and pilot transfer company Fonnes Batservice has contracted Ireland-based boat builder Safehaven Marine to build a new pilot boat.
The order was placed for a pilot and crew transfer design capable of transporting 12 personnel.
The superstructure design is modified to incorporate forward angle windows to comply with Norwegian Maritime Authorities regulations.
The boat, which will carry the name Masculin, will be powered by a pair of Scania DI13 372kW engines delivering an operational speed of 26 knots.
The specification also calls for a powerful hydraulic bow thruster integrated to a Twin Disc dynamic propulsion control system.
