15M Pilot Launch
GP54 is the first unit to be delivered in a new series of four pilot boats built by Cheoy Lee for PSA Marine in Singapore. The original batch order of seventeen 12.5m pilot boats delivered in 1989 has seen many others follow. The latest batch of vessels begins a new chapter as it uses an entirely new hull design. The original and highly successful 12.5m design, had been stretched to 13.5m and 14.5m, and built with both conventional and jet drives. With the latest requirement for a slightly larger vessel however, it was time to move to a new model. The new hull, a Cheoy Lee design previously used for ferry and harbour launch applications was both longer and 300mm wider than the previous design and made an ideal platform for the latest PSA Marine requirement. PSA Marine offers pilotage services in and around Singapore and towage services throughout South East Asia. PSA’s tug boat fleet features many Cheoy Lee built Z-Tech tugs, and the organization also operates a fleet of water boats to supply potable water to ships visiting Singapore.
