Sentinel Marine exercises options on newbuilds and sells another vesselVessel & ROV News // October 12, 2012
Sentinel Marine in Singapore, which operates small fleet of anchor handlers, has ordered a number of newbuilds since becoming independent, and recently exercised options for two more vessels.
Established in June 2011 by Rory Deans, formerly of Nomis Shipping, with the twin aims of owning and operating offshore support vessels, the company recently exercised an option for two Khiam Chuan-designed platform supply vessels (PSVs) to be built in China.
The 75m vessels share the same specifications as the first two in the series and are due to be delivered in the third and fourth quarter of 2013.
Sentinel Marine also reports that, after what it described as “weeks of intense interest from buyers” in its AHTS vessels with two bow thrusters, it has sold Hull SK65 to the successful buyer (who has requested that the sale remains private).
