Marcon sells Mr SonnyVessel & ROV News // December 22, 2005
Marcon International, the well known shipbroker, in Coupeville, Washington in the US has announced that Cal Dive International has sold the supply vessel Mr Sonny (ex-Sea Level 21, ex-Scott Theriot) to Columbia Star Inc (a subsidiary of Ryan Marine Inc) of Galveston, Texas.
Mr Sonny was built in 1980 at Universal Iron Works in Houma, LA and designed as four-point dive support vessel with a 35 ton pedestal crane and 2,700ft2 of clear deck.
With accommodation for 28 people and an 30 day endurance, she has been used to support subsea projects including valve operations, hydrostatic testing, jetting, anode retrofits, pipeline crossings and debris removal.
The vessel had been laid up for a couple of years and the new owners immediately moved her into dry-dock for refurbishment. She will be swiftly reactivated into the US Gulf to assist with a number of pending offshore construction and maintenance projects.
