Turner Iceni has purchased two vessels – MCS Maestro and Don Quixote – which return to operations later this year after full refits.

MCS Maestro, an 18-metre South Boat, was purchased from Maritime Craft Services. The vessel will be refitted with Volvo IPS 900, shot blasted and repainted in Turner Iceni livery. Interior modifications include a new galley and updated nav comms.

Don Quixote, a 20-metre South Boat built in 2009, was purchased from Vroon. She will be re-engined with 1400hp MAN and Hamilton 651 jets which will have the new AVX control system and jet anchor. Don Quixote is also going to be lengthened to 23 metres and have 25,000 litres of fuel on board for refuelling operations.  The interior is going to be fully refreshed with new galley and seating.

Maestro will be completed by March 2019 with Don Quixote ready to be exhibited at Seawork 2019.

The work will be carried out by Diverse Marine in Cowes on the IOW. The management of Diverse Marine was involved in the development and build of both vessels.

In addition, the Diverse Marine team assisted Turner Iceni in sourcing suitable craft and brokering the sale of the vessels. As a key supplier and stakeholder to the renewable industry, Turner Iceni feel it is our duty and obligation to recycle and repurpose older assets to help reduce our carbon footprint.
