PN65 progress report

A short progress report on PN65 and PN66, seen here in dry-dock together. Launching date is fast approaching for PN65, and she will float out on 20th January. On the 23rd January the keels will be laid for PN67 and PN68.

The photo shows PN65 on the far side of the dock with PN66 in the foreground. PN66’s complete transom and poop deck are being lifted over PN65 by the dock gantry crane. PN65’s accommodation block, completely fitted out with cabins, public spaces and wheelhouse equipment, will be lifted on before launch.

Sea trials and delivery of PN65 is scheduled for May. Four of the eight NewcastleMax series will deliver into service in 2012 and four in 2013.
