First pilot boat SEEM 12-530AL flipping

30 January 2018

Currently at Merré shipyard, the construction of five SEEM 12-530AL pilot boats is under process and the first hull has been flipped before fitting the wheelhouse.

These are 12 meters aluminum pilot boats with optimized displacement to give these vessels an excellent power / speed ratio in order to improve the fuel consumption.

These vessels are propelled by two engines each fitted with a shaft line. The draft is less than one meter.

They are designed to carry 8 people, a crew of 3 people and 5 passengers in excellent conditions, even in bad weather and rough seas.

And they will operate in Bizerte , La Goulette, Sousse, Sfax, Gabes and Zarzis ports in Tunisia.
