Ordered by Nederlands Loodswezen, the very experienced Dutch Pilot Association, these new generation boats, appropriately built by the aluminium experts at Next Generation Shipyards, are considerably more economical than their predecessors.

With their Humphree Ride Control, they are also more comfortable in the shallow rough seas where they will mostly work. Beautifully built, they are very well-equipped, fast, safe, comfortable and efficient.

“The challenge was to build a vessel within the limitations of the design parameters and to achieve a significantly lower fuel consumption without sacrificing functionality,” NG Shipyards added. “One of the goals was to keep the total weight low and the centre of gravity on the right spot with very small tolerance. The result of this was a 20 per cent lower fuel consumption and very low noise levels in a vessel that is also easy and comfortable to manoeuvre.”

Vos Pace is a Dutch registered ship being seen out by Puffin Pilot vessel at Great Yarmouth 8th June 2021. Vos Pace is 83m long and 18m wide and made in 2015. Puffin is as long as Vos Pace is wide at 18m and 4m wide itself
I run over and managed to grab some nove shots even though the sun was facing into camera some of the time. As Puffin came back it looked even better I thought.
