Grandweld Shipyards delivered  “Fujairah Pilot I” to Ports of Fujairah. The vessel was part of contract to design, build and deliver two sister pilot boats. The 21M “Discovery Class” design has already built a solid reputation for providing highly efficient pilot services. The advanced double chine hull design and all round fenders ensures quick and safe pilot transfer in all weather conditions.  The vessel is equipped with 2x caterpillar C32 engines and twin Hamilton waterjets. The additional features resulted in increase in vessel weight whereby a strict weight control procedure was successfully implemented to monitor and maintain the vessel displacement within the design limits.  The 21M pilot boats design is based on a series of similar boats delivered by Grandweld Shipyards to ADNOC during 2006. The sister vessel, “Fujairah Pilot II”, is expected to be delivered on September 10, 2011.
