Netherlands-based towage and salvage specialist Multraship and Croatia-based diving specialist Hidroinžinjering have recovered the fishing vessel Marinero 1, which sank in January 2009 off Komiža, Vis Island, Croatia. The 31.75 m-long vessel sunk in a water depth of . An ROV inspection revealed that, although the vessel has suffered stern, rudder and propeller damage, there was no other visible damage to the hull. The ROV also showed that the vessel was lying on a sandy bottom with a 20-degree portside list which would allow lifting slings to be positioned beneath it.

The Multraship floating sheerlegs Cormorant was mobilized to Vis Island with a crew of 19. Under the guidance of an ROV, the divers rigged the slings underneath the Marinero 1 and connecting them to the deck tackle system of the Cormorant. The actual lift was performed in three stages and, after switching from the deck tackle to the main tackle in the A frame, the Marinero 1 was lifted to the surface. Having been patched and dried out, the Marinero 1 was handed over to its owners, who towed it into the port of Komiža.
