Fabrication is under way at Meercat’s Trafalgar Wharf facility, with Briggs Marine in Fife set to take to delivery later this year.
The sale of the 15.5m-long vessel is the second Meercat built for Briggs Marine and the sixth built by the business since Burgess Marine acquired Meercat Workboats in September 2014.
It is the first under new managing director Jamie Lewis, who took over in May.
Mr Lewis said: ‘It’s been a real pleasure to work with Briggs Marine throughout the sale process.

‘They’ve chosen a fantastic specification and I’m sure that the vessel will prove not only to be fit-for-purpose in its immediate role but in its future supporting the ever expanding Briggs business.
‘She’s proven and reliable and we look forward to a timely handover.’
The workboat has a deck cargo capacity of 20 tonnes and it will have twin Doosan main engines and a BETA Marine 21kVA generator.
