Spliethoff acquires former Zeamarine vessel

Spliethoff has acquired the P14-Type multipurpose vessel Zea Gold.

Zea Gold joins Poolgracht, another P14-Type heavy lift ship, in Spliethoff’s fleet.

The vessel, which was formerly part of Zeamarine’s fleet, has been renamed Palmgracht and will now sail under the Dutch flag.

With this acquisition, Spliethoff’s fleet consists of eight P-Type ships – three P8-Type units that are equipped with two holds and cranes that have a combined lifting capacity of 800 tonnes, and five P14-Type series, which have a combined crane capacity of 1,400 tonnes.

Palmgracht is currently in Rotterdam for maintenance and will depart for its next project in May.
