Bound for Mozambique

Built by Netherlands-based HDPE specialist Tideman Boats, a new HDPE pilot boat will shortly be on its way to Maputo, Mozambique.

One of a number of HDPE vessels operated by P&O Maritime in Africa, the latest addition to the fleet is the new RBC 1100 2OBD Pilot.  Powered by twin OXE 200 diesel outboards, the 5500kg 10.70m vessel is capable of 32kts and has a range of 500nm.  Designed for 24/7 operation offshore she is equipped with two aircon units and fitted out with 7 suspension seats for the comfort of crew and pilots.

HDPE is pretty much indestructible and so is seen as an ideal vessel construction material to withstand the continuous punishment meted out by the marine environment. Light and eco-friendly (100% recyclable), another major plus point for HDPE is that it is zero-maintenance.

Watch Bruno Tideman put the RBC 1100 2OBD Pilot through her paces here.
