Here’s a nice video of the rough weather sea trials of San Ciprian’s new Interceptor 42 Pilot boat ‘San Ciprano’. With the Covid-19 travel restrictions in place and the Guys from San Ciprian unable to fly here at present we’re having to do a remote ‘on-line handover’. So we made this video to give them every confidence that she is performing well, as she handled comfortably the stormy conditions prevailing on the South Coast of Ireland last Friday nicely, with winds of 50kts at the entrance to Cork Harbour, and over 4m heavily breaking seas offshore in the shoaling waters off the Daunt Rock, presenting the exact heavy weather conditions she was designed and built for. As the pilots in San Ciprian have to deal with the challenging seas of the Bay of Biscay in wintertime, we wanted to ensure she was up to the task. She is due to be shipped overland shortly where she is needed urgently to ensure essential pilotage to ships entering and departing the Port in Northern Spain.
Irish builder Safehaven Marine has launched a new pilot boat slated for the Port of San Ciprian in Spain.
The vessel has an LOA of 13.4 metres, a moulded beam of 4.3 metres, a draught of 1.3 metres, and seating for one operator and up to five pilots.

Opinion Sea Trials in Stroms at the Entrance to Cork Habour
by Safehaven Marine - published on 3 March 2020
The entrance to Cork Harbour situated on the South coast of Ireland can produce some pretty extreme sea states during the winter storm months. There are two main factors that influence the sea state at the entrance, the first being the ebbing tide, the second being shoaling waters over the Harbour Rock, this is situated at the entrance to the Harbour off Roches Point lighthouse, right in the middle between the Western and Eastern channel entrances.
