Safehaven Marine have launched ‘Vigia’, an Interceptor 42 pilot boat for the port of Gijon in Spain. Vigia is the 13th pilot 42 model built and the 34th Pilot vessel Safehaven Marine have delivered to ports worldwide and has proved to be a superb sea boat performing admirably in pilotage operations with all owners extolling its virtues of seakeeping, strength and stability. Vigia is powered by a pair of Volvo D13 engines rated at 500hp and achieves an operational speed at MCR of 24.5kts. She is fitted with pilot boarding ladders in this instance, heavily fendered all round and incorporating Safehaven’s sacrificial fender system protecting the vessel at her boarding area and softening the inevitable hard impact that can occur in poor conditions. A full suite of Funruno electronics are installed at her central helm position and she provides seating for 4 pilots on Grammer suspension seats in her very highly fitted out main cabin, which provides a comfortable relaxed environment for pilots and crew during transfers.
