Urk, September 1, 2017
Javelin International delivered the fourth Javelin vessel to Braveheart Marine: the Javelin was christened to Patriot. A seaworthy multipurpose vessel specially designed for hydrographic survey and crew tender activities. The Patriot is the fourth vessel from Javelin International that Braveheart Marine ads to its fleet. With the words: ‘I wish you and your crew safe voyages’ the vessel was christened to Patriot by Clara Eschbach, a Braveheart employee from the very beginning.

The Javelin is a multipurpose vessel. The vessel is suitable for hydrographic survey, crew tender and support activities like, transport of equipment or cargo, diving support, windfarm support and guard vessel operations. The Javelin 25.25 is able to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week past the 200 miles zone. Such a large operation area requires that the crew will possible stay at sea for a longer period of time. Therefore, the Javelin not only has a lot of work space and 12 crew seats, but also 10 berths, 2 toilets and a shower, a watermaker and a fully equipped galley.

Ready for operations for Tideway
After the christening and sea trials the Patriot will sail to Zeebrugge, Belgium. Vessel and crew will perform hydrographic survey and crew tender activities for Tideway on the Rentel offshore windfarm for the Belgian coast.

The christening
Clara Eschbach, whom from the founding of Braveheart Marine, 12 years ago, has contributed to the growth of the company as a loyal and hardworking employee, christened the vessel. ‘Clara is a symbol for the hardworking employees of the internationally oriented Urker company’, says a proud Jelle Hakvoort. After the christening there was the opportunity to sail with the new vessel.
