VROON STANDBY

See page one by clicking on the links below for the rest of the fleet. The Vroon standby fleet has decreased by three vessels since the last review, one of the them being the VOS Sailor which was damaged by a larger wave, killing the Mate.

A number of ships have been scheduled for entry into the fleet but the schedule has fallen behind and now all are said to be being delivered in 2014.
