    Marcon sells three utility boats to West Africa

    News // January 31, 2003
    Marcon International has announced that Shamrock Marine Services of Ajman, UAE has sold the three US built, Germanischer Lloyds classed utility boats Shamrock Petal (ex-Seabulk Shari), Shamrock Splendour (ex-Seabulk Shindaga) and Shamrock Dream (ex-Seabulk Houbara) to Guernsey, Channel Islands, based buyers, who will employ them offshore West Africa.

    The boats, built during the early 1980s, are each powered by a pair of GM16V92 diesels and range from 112-127ft in length. Petal and Dream were built by Hudson Shipbuilding and Dream was built by Eastern Marine.

    Marcon says the buyers are shipping the vessels aboard the Jumbo heavy-lift ship Fairlift as deck cargo for transit from Ajman to Douala, Cameroon. Marcon acted as the sole broker in the sale.
