Birdon partnered with internationally acclaimed designers Camarc for this project to design and build a new pilot vessel for Newcastle Port Corporation.
The new 16m Pilot Cutter ‘Henry Newton’ was delivered to Newcastle Port Corporation on the 30th of October 2011.
The vessel is in 2C class New South Wales Maritime Survey and is also built to Lloyds Register of Shipping 100+.
Capable of operating in the most challenging conditions,  ‘Henry Newton’ will serve to transport pilots safely to and from ships in the Newcastle area over the next 30 years.
