New buoy tender at Navexpo floating trade show Le mardi, 30 janvier 2018.
The third Navexpo International floating trade show will be held at Lorient La Base from 15 to 17 May 2018. The boats afloat area will feature the Gavrinis buoy tender, the pride of the fleet operated by France’s lighthouses and beacons service (French: Phares et Balises). Both the service and shipbuilder Delavergne will use the event to formally present the vessel to the public. Delavergne delivered the 27.5-metre aluminium hulled vessel in November. Other Navexpo exhibitors that contributed to the Gavrinis project include Émeraude Moteurs Systèmes (Scania diesels), Hydro Armor, Sofradi, ECCS and naval architecture bureau H&T.
