The Dutch Pilot Association developed a new Pilot Station Vessel and ordered three vessels to built by Barkmeijer Shipyards. The first vessel ‘Polaris’, is baptized on October 10, 2012 by her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. December 6, 2012 the ‘Polaris’ enters service and will replace the old pilot station vessel ‘Markab’. In 2013 the other two vessels will be finished.
