On behalf of the Port Authority, we are pleased to have been instructed to act as principal broker for the sale of two pilot boats, (St Brides and St Govans) both of which are easily commissioned, in current code (locally) and ready to go into service with a prompt timescale if required. They are in exceptional condition, very low hours (<1500) and have enjoyed meticulous care and servicing.
In almost ‘as new‘ condition, the opportunity exists to be able to buy either boat individually or both together, potentially avoiding a 2-3 year lead time on a new one if ordered today. In particular engines of this type/size are hard to source with the current pressures on global supply chains.
They are obviously very substantial and capable boats which have the potential to fulfil a variety of possible roles, not just as a pilot boats.
The local port authority has a long history of always operating and maintaining an optimised fleet to keep up with the ever-changing demands in their service provision. With their future strategic requirements in mind, these two boats have become available to acquire immediately.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
