Pilot vessel P-class

The pilot vessels are deployed at their pilot stations at sea. We use fast launches or pilot tenders to bring the registered pilots to ingoing ships. We also use these types of transport to disembark pilots from outgoing ships and to bring them to the pilot vessel or to bring them ashore.
