CABLE BAY was working in the Wind Farm industry until the summer of 2015. She was then chartered as a guard vessel on the French Atlantic coast for 6 months. She has just completed a refit and is fully coded and ready for more adventures. 

She is perfect as a survey platform with excellent slow speed directional stability and maneuverability and she also comes with a vast aft working deck for any 

needed equipment. She has already proved herself to be a capable windfarm transfer and service vessel and also has potential for patrols and guard duties. 

Her builders Austal built her in a Tri-Swath design which delivers great sea keeping, during her time on the French Atlantic cost over the winter of 2015/16 her 

French Captain remarked that he didn’t once have seas over the bows even in the most challenging of conditions that they met during the period. Her twin jets 

deliver fuel efficiency and comfortable transits.  She is a recent, well found vessel that is good to go.
