Gibraltar Pilots order new Seaward 35 pilot boat


published on 5 February 2021 216 -

Gibraltar Pilots have chosen a new Seaward Nelson 35 as their next Pilot vessel.

Knowing the practical, seaworthy reliability of the Nelson 35 design, it was only natural that Gibraltar Pilots selected the UK builder, Seaward, for their new vessel.

Seaward’s quality of build and attention to detail, the expert knowledge of the staff, coupled with the builder’s long history of building quality commercial craft, made Seaward the obvious choice.

Matt Kent, of Gibraltar Pilots, said “Our experience with the tough and seaworthy Nelson 35 hull combined with Seaward’s new developments and state-of-the-art build practices made the Seaward 35 pilot boat a perfect choice for our challenging area of operation.”

The Seaward Nelson 35 pilot boat, like all of Seaward’s pilot boat range, retain the
time-tested and world proven qualities of the refined Nelson hull form that is unrivalled in its sea-keeping and handling abilities and to which many users return repeatedly.

Seaward produce a commercial range of Nelson design craft from 19’ to 42’

Editor's note: Nice video and many right steps! But the pilot should walk on the other - none ship - side for his safety. Great to see so many helmets and the second man secured to the pilot boat with a line.
