The two vessels we own are former Dutch pilot boats built in 1977 and 1978, but both were refitted to improve accommodation, safety and security standards in 2017.
Each of our transfer vessels has two diesel inboard engine tender boats deployed from individual davit cranes. These tender boats are specifically designed for the transferring of teams and equipment to client vessels and their design means they can operate in more aggressive sea states. This hugely reduces the impact of turbulent weather on transferring teams and minimises the chance of delays.
Both our transfer vessels can comfortably house up to 110 guards, and have amenities that make them suitable for both short and medium-term stays including gym, wifi and entertainment.
This includes a Senior Chief Engineer and Marine Superintendent. Both vessels have recently undergone their five-year special surveys, and are insured in the London market.
Our firearms are regularly maintained and checked by our on-board specialist armourer.
Guards and crew embarked on our vessels have access to advice from our on-call company doctor if they are feeling unwell.
