Marcon International Inc. reported the sale of two 105’ x 22’ x 8’ depth, aluminum crew boats by a private U.S. Owner to Mexican buyers. The triple screw, sister-vessels were built in 1981 and 1982 by Swiftships, Inc. in Lafitte, Louisiana.

Both are powered by three turbocharged GM 12V71TI diesels, generating a total of 1,530BHP at 2,100RPM, which propels the boats at a speed of 20 – 25kn. Capacities include about 34 LT of cargo on an open 43’ x 17’ cargo deck aft, 2,400g fuel and 1,000g fresh water. Air conditioned seating is provided for 45 passengers, plus accommodations for a crew of four with a full galley and head.

The two vessels were drydocked, refurbished and reclassed under an IACS society by the new owner before being transported on their own bottom to Mexico where they will be employed in local oilfield support.

This is the fourth and fifth crew boats which Marcon has brokered to this close buyer over the last 24 months. One additional sister-boat is expected to close within about 45 days. Marcon acted as sole broker in both this, and the previous transaction. Buyers and sellers have requested names be kept confidential due to commercial reasons.

To date, Marcon has concluded a total of 13 sales and charters this year. Several additional transactions are pending and expected to close within the next 30 days.

Marcon has sold or chartered a total of 1,305 vessels and barges over the last 32 years including a total of 91 crew, fast supply and pilot boats.
