2002 Sales and Charters
We are pleased to report the following sales and charters we have been involved with this year as shipbrokers. One additional vessel was sold under private and confidential terms.
Puget Sound Pilots has sold their 1974 built pilot boat ‘Cascade’ to The Undersea Company of Port Townsend, WA. The 48’ x 15.7’ x 6.7’ vessel, powered with twin Cummins 903 diesels will be removed from service as a pilot vessel and converted to a launch vessel for a variety of uses. The vessel became surplus once Puget Sound Pilots had taken delivery of their second new pilot boat earlier this year. This is the second Pilot Vessel that Marcon has sold for Puget Sound Pilots in the last two years. Marcon acted as sole broker in this sales transaction.
The research vessel ‘Sensor ,’ the first vessel ever sold by Marcon back in 1983, and owned by Raytheon Company, has been resold to Hargett Marine of Lafayette, LA. The 136’ x 36’ x 10.5’ vessel was originally built in 1956 as one of the first generation purpose built supply vessels by Harms & Smaihall Shipyard of Orange, TX. She is still powered with her twin turbo-charged Enterprise DMM 363TA’s diesel engines producing a total of 1,000 BHP at 950 RPM. She has a large open 109’ x 29’ clear deck but has been outfitted with a 15 Ton A-frame, a 20 Ton straight boom hydraulic crane and a two ton “knuckle-boom” crane. Over the recent years she has primarily been used in the Seattle, Washington area to test and evaluate sonar products manufactured by Raytheon for the U.S. Navy and commercial markets. The new owner plans to keep her positioned in the Pacific Northwest region and use her for sonar, seismic and research related business opportunities. Marcon acted as sole broker in the transaction. This is the second vessel Marcon has sold for Raytheon this year.
