Holyhead Marine have just delivered their first 13m Pilot Boat to Stena Line Ports in Holyhead. The GRP craft will be performing Pilotage duties for Stena’s Fleet in and out of the Port of Holyhead. The vessel will feature the Camarc Popsure fender system and a resilient superstructure to improve noise & comfort. With a max speed of over 27 knots and will be used to transfer up to four pilots and two crew members to and from ships that are entering and leaving the Port.
Nick Colin York, Managing Director of Holyhead Marine Services Ltd commented: “This craft is a welcome addition to Holyhead Marine’s portfolio of composite pilot boats designed by Camarc Design and has extended the existing range to include this smaller and more economic model. In keeping with maritime tradition, the Port Authority has christened the new boat and called it St Columba,”
