When you charter the ‘Pat M’ you charter a self propelled Backhoe Dredger built to Humber Work Boats specification by Shipyard De Donge in Holland in 2001. The ‘Pat M’ is a highly specialist backhoe type dredger. She is a Bureau Veritas classed self propelled ship andthat means significant cost savings for the client as no tugs are involved either in mobilising to and from site or for moving around within the dredge area.
The ‘Pat M’ is ideal for working in areas with close proximity to shipping movements. She operates with highly experienced and qualified crew including qualified Master, engineer, drivers and deckhands operating well maintained robust dredging equipment, and is controlled by state of the art electronics. The new ‘Dredgemaster’ dredging control system includes 3D views of the seabed and generates a wealth of invaluable information for the operator and client. The Pat M has ten years of dredging activity in many countries and in different environments and carries a large stock of spares to minimise downtime.
You will Charter under clearly defined BIMCO Supply Time contracts with transparent costs and no hidden surprises as can often be the case. Reliability, flexibility and experience are not specifically mentioned in the contract but with the Pat M they make the difference so crucial to our client base.
