Amevi Surprise sold by Ocean Independence
by Malcolm MacLean
I’ve just got off the phone to Peter Thompson, new-build director of Ocean Independence, who tells me that he has sold the revamped 56.4m Halter Marine support vessel Amevi Surprise. Built in 1981, she was completely overhauled to ABS class by Quality Shipyards in 2004. Peter confirms that the buyer is a prominent Dubai national, currently the owner of Red Sapphire, a 43m sportsfisherman, and Amevi Surprise will be renamed Red Sapphire Shadow.
