Here’s a nice little video of the sea trials of ‘Svitzer Oued Martil’ including some cool on-board 360 camera footage of her going through some pretty big breaking seas during rough weather testing, and some nice foggy day drone footage and trials alongside the Brittany Ferry ‘Armorique’. Oued Martil is the 3rd ‘self-righting’ all weather capable pilot vessel we have supplied to Svitzer for their pilotage operations in Tangier, Morocco, with the first two Interceptor 48’s operating very successfully the past two years.
