Irish boat builder Safehaven Marine has signed contracts with two Spanish ports simultaneously.

Safehaven will build an Interceptor 42 pilot vessel for the port of San Ciprian and an Interceptor 48 pilot for the Port of Coruna. Both are to be delivered mid 2020.

Safehaven Marine’s pilot craft have proved very popular in the Iberian Peninsula, and once these two are delivered Safehaven will have 14 pilot boats working in the Peninsula. Safehaven’s MD Frank Kowalski said, “it’s great to see that another two ports in Spain, along with Algeciras and Gijon will soon be undertaking pilot transfers with Safehaven’s Interceptors.  Both contracts follow the successful delivery of Lada an Interceptor 48 pilot vessel to Leixoes, Portugal in February, with pilots from both Coruna and San Ciprian visiting to sea trial Lada on a particularly rough day, and they were suitably impressed by her sea keeping, strength and engineering, so much so that contracts were concluded immediately.”

These two contracts totalling around 1.65 million Euro will bring Safehaven’s pilot boat deliveries up to 42 craft in successful operation worldwide.
