Sri Lanka builder completes pilot boat for Japan’s Kowa
Colombo Dockyard (CDPLC) of Sri Lanka has completed construction of a new pilot boat ordered by Japanese operator Kowa Company.
Designed by MacDuff Ship Design, Dolphin 41 has a length of 19 metres, seating for up to 12 people, and a speed of 20 knots. It will also have a secondary harbour patrol function.
CDPLC said the boat’s design is similar to those of three pilot launches that the company built for the Sri Lanka Ports Authority beginning between 2019 and 2020.
