Gardline have announced their new 23m vessel was due to undergo sea trials in Great Yarmouth this week prior to her launch.

The latest addition to their fleet, the MV Bittern was designed by Global Marine Design, with purpose built Z-Bows and has a 20m2 foredeck with a carrying capacity of five tonnes.

Once the sea trials are complete the Bittern will be launched and delivered to Ramsgate to begin operational trials with London Array prior to heading back to Yarmouth to begin work on her first contract.

Phil Durrant, managing director of Gardline Environmental Limited said: “We are very excited to see the MV Bittern in action and a new capability added to our existing fleet; feedback from clients during the build phase has been universally positive meaning that the vessel will go on to contract shortly after she is launched.”
