Port Kembla pilot boat recently launched
A new Naiad pilot boat for Port Kembla (south of Sydney, NSW, Australia) has recently been launched and delivered. Built in Queensland, this boat is virtually identical to the very successful Naiad pilot boat operated by Ports of Auckland.
This state of the art vessel "Shearwater" is performing extremely well, hitting all performance and handling targets with ease. It is a light, fast pilot boat and very fuel efficient which is the style of operation port companies are now requiring.
