Ninth Pilot 1820 - twelfth pilot boat for the demanding Norwegian market


published on 5 September 2022 87 -

Kewatec builds the twelfth pilot boat and the ninth Pilot 1820 boat for Buksér og Berging in Norway. The boat is of the same series as the previous Pilot 1820 boats that have been delivered during the last five years. The boats have a total length of 18.2 meters and are the flagships of Kewatec's pilot boat range.

Kewatec Pilot 1820 is designed for the Atlantic coast of Norway, where there are already eight Kewatec boats in use. The boat's impressive seaworthiness is achieved by its size, V-bottom, and powerful engines. In addition, the boat can take water ballast up to 3.5 tons.

The boat, built entirely of aluminum, is light and uses a reasonable amount of fuel for its size and performance. At a speed of 30 knots, it consumes only 6.5 liters per nautical mile.

With a total length of 18.2, the boat is agile despite its size. The boat is equipped with two Volvo IPS propulsion units and a computer-controlled joystick that allows the boat to be turned around and moved side by side to the desired location. Narrow maneuvering is also facilitated by a second control station on the aft deck.

The new Kewatec Pilot 1820 will be delivered to Norway next summer.
