published on 15 May 2021 235

The Ministry of Transport can confirm that the pilot boat, St David, was involved in a crash with a reef off of the Northeast Breaker Beacon on Thursday, May 6th, 2021 at 6:48am.

The St David was on a training exercise en route to the North Rock Beacon and had four crew on board.

The pilot boat, purchased in 2011 for $2,795,000.00 is insured for 2.8 million dollars.

The Minister of Transport, Lawrence Scott JP, MP stated today: “We are very grateful that none of the crew was hurt in the crash of St David. Investigations are still underway, and the damage to the vessel is being assessed by Lloyds Classification, who will be arriving on the island early next week.

“Once the inspection has been completed Lloyds will provide recommendations for repairs.”

This incident will not impact shipping and a future update will be provided once the official investigation report has been submitted and reviewed by the Ministry.
