Foyle Marine takes delivery of Damen Shoalbuster

Damen has just announced that Foyle Marine Dredging Ltd is now the proud owner of the Damen Shoalbuster 2208 Afon Lligwy ex Herman.


Currently, Foyle Marine is performing an important dredging project in Castletownbere, Ireland, for Sorensen Civil Engineering Ltd.

Before take-over they have chartered the vessel for 6 months for a project in the Irish Sea from previous owner Holyhead Towing.

Afon Lligwy has been assisting Foyle’s own dredging equipment on a civil engineering project. She is now being docked for her special survey after which she will go straight back to work.

The Afon Lligwy was built in May 2002 for Herman Sr. in the Netherlands. Thanks to her the multi-purpose proven design and quality, this vessel is well suitable for various operations including dredging.

The new owner, absolutely pleased with the vessel performances, commented: “she really opted our production already and we are very pleased with her. We are sure she will be able to sail many more years to everyone’s satisfaction.”
