Work is progressing well on the new 15 metre Meercat Multi Role Vessel for Guernsey Harbours.
The Meercat’s hull is now watertight, and deck has been partially been welded to the hull. Work is due to start on the wheelhouse shortly.
Meercat Boats also welcomed representatives from its new owners at Guernsey Harbours. Martyn Stanfield of Head of Technical & Estate Services for Guernsey Harbours & Airports, commented, “It was good to see so much progress has been made on the vessel.”
The new 15 metre workboat is being customised to precisely suit its harbour and support duties in the demanding sea conditions of the Channel Islands, more specifically the island of Guernsey.
Guernsey Harbours manage over 1800 local berths and moorings in its jurisdiction, making it the largest marina facility in the British Isles. Guernsey is also one of Europe’s largest tender ports for cruise ships, plus operates and maintains more than 60 crucial navigational aids including buoys and beacons.
The new MRV15 was chosen for its versatility and robust nature, enabling it to service the ports and harbours requirements spanning all Guernsey Harbours’ key areas of operation.
