Recently employed on support work in Liverpool Bay, from where she was seen arriving, the Vroon Offshore Services' support vessel VOS INSPIRER was heading to the Garvel Drydock for survey. She is British registered and was built in Spain in 2007. At 55.2 metres in length, she has a gross tonnage of 1,433 tons. Like many ships of her type, azimuth propellers are fitted and in her case, driven by diesel-electric power. Three Fast Rescue Craft are carried - these can be seen clearly on her after deck - and she is capable to carry up to 300 survivors at a time.
