Safehaven Marine launch new Interceptor 48 Pilot boat for the Port of Leixoes, Portugal

January 27, 2019

 

Safehaven Marine have launched a new Interceptor 48 Pilot boat for the Portugease Port of Leixoes. ‘Lada’ will be the 39th Pilot vessel Safehaven have supplied to Ports Worldwide. Their 48 version has proved to be a very successful design, ‘Lada' being the 14th built since the first of class was delivered in 2010, and with four more on the order book it continues to be very popular, especially for Ports such as Leixoes, which is exposed to the Atlantic sea and experience’s large waves in Wintertime. As such excellent seakeeping was paramount in their requirements.

 

Capable of 25kts powered by a pair of Volvo D13 500hp engines through ZF gearboxes, the Pilot 48 is able to carry 7 pilots and crew in comfort, all on suspension seating in her large main cabin. Rough weather sea trials undertaken yesterday presented a good opportunity for Safehaven to capture some really stunning Ariel footage seen here, where her handling and seakeeping was clearly demonstrated. She is due to be delivered mid Febuary where she will enter service in pilotage at one of Portugals most busy Ports.
