Video Genesis – Berkeley Class Pilot Boat by Dongara Marine
Found on YouTube. Created by "Dongara Marine Pty Ltd".
Harbour Services Australia was the client for this ultra-efficient pilot vessel, Dongara Marine's second Berkeley Class pilot boat to operate from the port of Fremantle.
Delivered in June 2019 it joined Fremantle Pilots’ Berkeley, which had already been operating with great success in the Western Australian port since 2015.
Purpose-designed to maximise overall operability and the safety and comfort of pilots and crew even in demanding sea conditions, the Berkeley Class provides:
• High open water speed for fast transits;
• Extreme stability with confirmed self-righting;
• High levels of seakeeping, directional control, and manoeuvrability;
• Superior dryness; and
• Enhancing habitability through reduced noise, vibration, and heat transfer.
We tailored Genesis to the specific requirements and preferences of Harbour Services Australia (HSA). This included HSA becoming the first operator to select the twin Scania DI16 076M powering option.
