Island Offshore newbuilds likely to change hands before deliveryVessel & ROV News // November 28, 2016
Three UT717CDX vessels that are under construction for Island Offshore at Vard Brevik - Island Defender, Discoverer and Diligence - which have been delayed at the request of owners, are unlikely to be delivered to Island Offshore, says broker Westshore.
The broker said their exact delivery date and when they will hit the market remains to be seen, but what is known is that once they are delivered they will not belong to the Island Offshore Group.
Westshore said Island Victory, which is a UT797 CDX design AHTS vessel has been set back several times but now looks like it will be delivered in the first quarter of 2018. The vessel is expected to be around 400 tonnes bollard pull and will be built at Vard in Brevik.
