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”.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
