This vessel is already the ninth vessel, previously owned by the Dutch Pilot Association, of which Damen Trading has handled the sale as exclusive broker. We will continue this cooperation for the next couple of years when the next pilot boats become available.

Damen Trading has announced the sale of the Pilot Boat

The vessels ranged in size from small pilot boats like the Mercury to larger, 55 metres long Pilot Station vessels.

Michel Radjiman, Senior Sales Manager of Damen Trading and Chartering says: “During the time we have worked with the Dutch Pilot Association we have enjoyed an excellent cooperation and we thank them for putting their trust in us.”

Mr Bentinck, Managing Director of the Pilot Association, said: “We have been very pleased with the personable service we have received from Damen Trading and the fact that the collaboration has achieved exactly the result we were seeking.”

Damen has worked with Mariserve on a number of occasions in the past. The Captain/Owner, Mr Kapitein, said: “Damen Trading helped us to sell a pushboat on one occasion and, over the course of the past 9 years, we have purchased three vessels from them. It has always been a pleasure to work with Damen Trading.”

The Mercury will continue under the name Sirocco.
