Built by Hall, Russel & Co. Aberdeen

Built in 1965 as an oil field supply, survey and rescue vessel, Sea King has worked continuously servicing the North Sea oil fields until 1998 when she was acquired by a company to fulfill contracts in Africa.

In 1998 the vessel was dry docked and a complete hull and machinery refit was undertaken, to complete satisfaction of the registration authority.

The vessel was acquired in 1999 by Vesuvius Shipping Ltd and further alterations were undertaken such as the clearance of the cargo hold of obstruction and the resiting of machinery to give a large hold space for use as a cable tank for the communications industry or general cargo (approx 500tons).

It should be noted that the vessel has large capacity service tanks for fuel and fresh water. She has accommodation for 20 single berths and 300 survivor capacity. Full work shop facilities with lathe, pillar drill, welders and cutting equipment are situated adjacent to the engine room.
