Acta Marine takes delivery of new 50 tons bollard pull workboat

January 14, 2011

Acta Marine has taken delivery of their most powerful workboat to date; a new built anchor handling tug with 50 tons bollard pull. On January 6th last the vessel was named Coastal Vanguard during a festive ceremony in Rotterdam which was attended by many friends and business relations.

Coastal Vanguard is built by Damen Shipyards and is a Shoalbuster 3209 design vessel. The 3209 type is amongst the largest and most powerful within the range of the popular Damen Shoalbuster workboats. Acta Marine anticipates strong demand for the services of their new vessel, particularly at projects in the Offshore Wind market and cable- and pipeline installations.


Acta Marine is an independent owner and operator of 40 workboats. The delivery of Coastal Vanguard is part of the company’s extensive invest program, aimed to modernize and expand the fleet, while optimizing the management organization.
