Bring it on!

Self-righting, able to recover if capsized by large breaking seas and capable of 'all weather' operations, 'Svitzer Oued Martil' is a new 15m Interceptor 48 Pilot from Safehaven Marine.

‘Svitzer Oued Martil’ will be delivered after completion of commissioning and sea trials after another challenging but successful COVID build for Safehaven.  No client visits were possible due to travel restrictions and handover was undertaken remotely by video conference aboard; recognition of a yard trusted in its abilities to deliver high quality pilot vessels without extensive client supervision.

Powered by a pair of Volvo D13 500hp engines, ZF gearboxes and conventional shaft drive, ‘Svitzer Oued Martil’ has an operational speed of 25kts. Accommodation comprises a crew/ pilot capacity for 7, all on KAB suspension seating in her comfortably 27,000btu air-conditioned main cabin, with additional seating for 5 provided in a spacious forward cabin.

The vessel’s central helm position, with all navigational screens and instrumentation easily viewable and accessible, gives excellent all round visibility and control of the craft when undertaking ship pilot transfers alongside. She is fitted with a sacrificial shoulder fender system, protecting the main boarding area and cushioning the inevitable hard impact that can occur in poor conditions. The larger fender enables a purpose-made gap for the ships boarding ladder to sit safely when alongside without it getting trapped.

The new pilot has a new Safehaven design sliding boarding ladder/platform with an adjustable reach, raising the pilot  approx. 1.2m above deck.  Accessing the platform from the opposite side to boarding, the pilot is able to cross the foredeck area quickly and safely; the boarding platform is adjustable in 3 stages and can be set according to the distance to the ship's side, the prevailing sea state and likely roll of the vessel.  The platform also allows for belting or similar hull protrusions to be navigated.
