Type of Boat: 15.5m Pilot Cutter
Spec: Built by V.T. Halmatic Ltd, Portsmouth in 2006
Project Scope: Major fire damage repair
In July 2010 the Falmouth Harbour Commissioners pilot boat ‘Arrow’ suffered a devastating engine room fire. Much of the damage was immediately obvious. But the full extent could not be assessed until the area had been cleared and properly examined.
Mylor Yacht Harbour won the fiercely-contested repair contract not only because our Marine Team could offer the required practical skills at the right price, but principally because we demonstrated the best ability to manage the evolving work programme, transparently specifying cost-effective solutions as it proceeded and new problems were revealed.
Captain Mark Sansom, the Falmouth Harbour Master, said “This was potentially a nightmare from a boat repair point of view. But Mylor conducted an extremely intricate management exercise, making sure that every job was accountable and verifiable. That meant we were able to get the repairs undertaken as quickly as possible, and also construct a very complex insurance claim history around them.”
