Acta Marine buys Multicat COASTAL ACE

At the end of 2015 DSB Offshore was approached by Acta Marine, who were looking to add to their fleet a multicat-type vessel of around 30tbp. DSB, through their long involvement in Australia, were able to offer and negotiate the sale of an offmarket 2611 Eurocarrier (ex Ellen K), located in North Australia. 26.5m long, shallow draft, with 35 tonne bollard pull, she was built at Neptune Shipyards in 2013. Operating on a tight schedule, DSB liaised with buyers and sellers on a daily basis right through the holiday period to achieve a delivery in Singapore to the Buyers in January 2016. The Eurocarrier is now renamed 'Coastal Ace' and will begin work in February on a dredging and reclamation project in Taiwan. The vessel was delivered on time and in good order. Both Buyers and Sellers were satisfied with the deal.
