Ocean Pacific Marine have been awarded a contract to build a state-of-the-art 19.9m Pilot Boat for the Pacific Pilotage Authority. This vessel will feature the new Camarc refined double chine hull, providing enhanced efficiency and reduced accelerations & motions for the Operator. A resiliently mounted wheelhouse will also be installed to optimise noise and vibration for Crew comfort.
The heightened hull efficiency in conjunction with a new-to-market Tier III emissions system provides the latest in efficient clean operations for high-speed, long-range diesel pilot boats. Waterjets will be installed to provide the manoeuvrability and protection against damage from log debris, vital to operations in BC. The large section Camarc Popsure fender system will also feature for pilotage boarding impacts. When delivered, the new vessel will join the PPA fleet with 4 existing Camarc vessels.
