SEAWORX

Seaworx, according to a now rather aged press release, was purchased by Vroon in 2004 and at that time was amalgamated with the Vroon subsidiary Telco. They owned 11 vessels of various sorts at that time all of them peripheral, one could say, to the central activity of offshore support vessels.

Of the eleven vessels we have pictures, and therefore details, of two.
