The Port of Townsville has welcomed the newest addition to its fleet of pilot boats with the arrival of the newly built Mantaray.

The $3.3 million, custom-built vessel utilises high-tech equipment and design to maximise safety and efficiency for pilot transfers.

Port of Townsville Chief Operating Officer Drew Penny said the Mantaray had been specifically designed to handle open sea conditions at Abbot Point, where the vessel will be based.

“The Port of Townsville employs 11 marine pilots who are responsible for ensuring vessels safely navigate their way to and from ports in Townsville, Lucinda and Abbot Point. The conditions our pilots face in Abbot Point can be slightly more challenging due to the open nature of the harbour,” said Mr Penny.

Last financial year, the Port of Townsville’s pilots completed 789 pilotage movements at Abbot Point. The journey for the pilot commences from Bowen where the pilot boat is moored.
