BOSTON PUTFORD

Boston Putford has been in existence for many years but in about 1998 was acquired by the American supply ship operators Seacor. All of their ships are standby vessels, or as they are more formally known "ERRVs".

Since the last review the company has gained one ship and disposed of two. 17/10/12

And at the 2014 review it appears that a further ship has gone and one has been added, but basically the fleet has become static, and so one imagines that Seacor may be investing its resources elsewhere.

Reviewed 22nd January 2014.
