Pilot Boats

Market overview of Pilot Boats manufacturers worldwide

Modern Pilot Boats (ships) can be from 7 metres to over 25 metres in length, built to withstand heavy seas and bumping against 100,000 ton tanker ships. They are high-powered and hence both very quick and durable purpose-built boats. They are normally painted a highly visible colour such as orange, red or yellow.

Announcement: Soon there will also be a market for used Pilot Boats. Suppliers are welcome to contact us.
