This was a working survey ship kept in top condition which came out of service in March 2014 as the business model of the survey company changed and they no longer needed a large offshore vessel as they now do cable work using smaller vessels closer to shore and in shallow water. A crew member stayed onboard to run systems and do general upkeep until October of 2016.
She was last on our dry dock in Jan 2014 and is ready for conversion to a stern ramp supply vessel if needed.
All systems are working and the vessel is ABS Loadline and just came out of SOLAS unrestricted Ocean Service. She only needs update of fares, First Aid kits, fire extinguishers and life rafts to be recertified.
Powered by Cat mains and fully operational she is constantly maintained and in tip top condition. In 2014 she blew an engine while on a contract and a factory rebuild with 188 hours replaced the blown engine.
She can stay out on the job for 75 days straight and is fitted out with comforts to keep survey teams comfortable while on the job. Cool AC and new galley equipment make her a nice vessel.
The survey equipment would be removed allowing a clear free back deck ideal for hauling containers or cargo. She is fitted with a 10 ton deck crane with has a 40ft reach.
The stern ramp was removed to accommodate survey work but all the king pins are in place making it easy to reinstall a new ramp.
Currently alongside at the Bradford Marine Bahamas shipyard in Freeport Harbor and easy to view. She periodically does charters but still is accessible.
ALL PHOTOS OF THE INSIDE SPACES AND ENGINE ROOM WERE TAKEN IN FEBUARY 2017.
