Safehaven Marine’s latest Interceptor 48 launch is ‘Dalmore’, built for the Port of Cromarty Firth in Scotland.

Powered by a pair of Volvo D13 500hp engines, the pilot boat has an operational speed of 25 knots and accommodates seven crew and pilots.

Dalmore is due for delivery by sea from Cork to Cromarty, north of Inverness, via the Caledonian Canal within the next few weeks.

The new vessel will mark Safehaven’s 40th pilot boat delivery, and the 15th of the successful Interceptor 48 model, “proving how well respected the design is within the industry, with another four on order”. Team
