HALMATIC are synonymous with commercial pilot vessels worldwide and their various designs are a recognised industry standard. This particular model is based on the ARUN CLASS Lifeboat hull famously used by the RNLI as their flagship offshore lifeboat for many years. A proven semi displacement hull with a dependable power train for possibly the most arduous of marine operations. The robustness of construction and typical pilot vessel features of this vessel such as the fendering and functional MoB platform, make her ideally suited to many other commercial roles. Currently MCA Coded to Cat. 3, PV ‘Patrol’ has just been released from service. She has a port engine issue requiring rebuild / replacement and will be sold ‘as seen’ with the engine removed from the vessel but included in the sale.
DESIGN: This vessel was purpose built as a pilot vessel and follows a standard format with central helm position, maximised vision laterally and viewing windows within the wheelhouse superstructure for upward vision when boarding ships. The wheelhouse is placed amidships at deck level to facilitate ease of access for pilots to enter and leave the cabin area.
WHEELHOUSE: The helmsman and crew have a dedicated operational space with 3 No. suspension seats separated from the main seating area This has bench seating and two KAB suspension seats (recently replaced) (S), a chart table and storage cabinet (P) and central wooden doors open outwards onto the after deck. The helm console is positioned centrally to maximise peripheral vision and all operational instrumentation can be easily monitored including electronic navigational aids, engine controls and instruments. This vessel is fitted with heated front screens with 2 x pantograph wipers (P&S) and a straight-line wiper for the helm. Passive lighting is provided for night operations and the vessel is fitted with appropriate internal and external lighting including search lights and deck illumination.
ACCOMMODATION: The companionway to port of the con leads to the accommodation below. In the forepeak, a watertight ‘dogged’ door provides access to a storage aft and chain locker. The saloon/mess area has bench seating (P&S) which can serve as two berths if required with storage lockers above and further storage below the seating. The GALLEY: (P) has working surfaces, a Panasonic microwave oven, stainless steel sink/drainer (H&C), extractor, 240v supply for electrical devices and a refrigerator (located opposite) plus usual storage for provisions and cooking utensils.
HEADS COMPARTMENT: (S) with Jabsco electric toilet and stainless steel hand basin (H&C), extractor and storage lockers.
Accommodation areas are served by a diesel hot air heater + Calorifier hot water system pressure pumped to the galley and heads compartments.
EXTERNAL: The working deck is flush to gunwale and provides one level access forward to the boarding area, inboard safety rails are fitted with Hadrian tracks. A forward ‘island’ rail is fitted. The transom is recessed and fitted with a hydraulically operated ‘man-over-board’ recovery platform. A raised central structure serves as access to fuel & water tanks at the rear end of the engine room. The vessel has a signal mast atop the wheelhouse with operational lighting.
