Newcastle Port Pilot Boat

Birdon designed, constructed and delivered the 16-metre pilot vessel Henry Newton. The Henry Newton was built and surveyed to full Lloyd’s Classification.

The new 16 metre Pilot Cutter ‘Henry Newton’ was delivered to Newcastle Port Corporation on the 30th of October 2011.

Birdon partnered with internationally acclaimed designers Camarc for this project to design and build a new pilot vessel for Newcastle Port Corporation.

The vessel is in 2C class New South Wales Maritime Survey and is also built to Lloyd’s Register of Shipping 100+.

Henry Newton can operate in the most challenging of conditions and will serve to transport pilots safely to and from ships in the Newcastle area over the next 30 years.
