Noordhoek Singapore soldVessel & ROV News // November 10, 2010
Marcon International of Coupeville, Washington has reported the sale of Noordhoek Singapore.
The 65.65m x 14.05m, Dutch flagged, multi-purpose construction, dive and ROV support vessel (ex-Serviceman, ex-Smit Marlin, ex-Smit-Lloyd 61) was sold by Noordhoek Offshore BV of Zierikzee, The Netherlands to Nigerian buyers.
Marcon had previously brokered the purchase of the vessel to Noordhoek in 2000.
The new owners have renamed the vessel Singapore Explorer and scheduled her to promptly start work in the Nigerian offshore oilfields as platform maintenance and inspection vessel.
"Singapore Explorer is 33 years old and only seems to show her age through the design of the vessel. She was in very good condition at the time of the sale and hopefully will serve her new owners well for many years into the future," said Marcon, who acted as sole broker in the sale.
