“Fearless” Marine Rescue Vessel

Birdon was engaged to perform a major refurbishment on the largest vessel in the Marine Rescue NSW fleet. “Fearless”, a retired Marine Area Command vessel, was acquired by Marine Rescue in February 2020 and underwent a customised refit at our Port Macquarie shipyard.

The refurbishment included stripping and replacing the interior, building a new wheelhouse console, renewing the flybridge console, installing new electronics, mechanical overhaul, full external repaint, and removing, inspecting and aligning the shafts and propellers.

Birdon’s team worked quickly on this project to meet client requirements with support from specialist subcontractors.

This vessel will form part of the Marine Rescue unit in Lord Howe Island.
