We have Just completed the laying up of a new pilot vessel for Eric Geille of the Port of  St Malo in France. She will be an Interceptor 42 pilot, powered by two 12.9 litre 500hp Iveco engines, and built to a very high specification. Below her hull and superstructure are joined  and work is commencing on her fit out.

Safehaven Marine have worked very closely with Eric Geille in preparing a detailed build specification that conforms to the French Marine Marchande rules divisions 222+236. In addition the hull has now achieved full plan approval from the classification society- Bureau Veritas.
