Siem said on Monday that the 2009-built MRSV Siem Marlin was bought by Marine Platforms Ltd.

According to the company, the agreement was made at market term, and the delivery of the Siem Marlin was scheduled to take place this week.

The last time Offshore Energy Today reported on the vessel was in April 2017 when the Siem Marlin was one of eight vessels that were awarded new charter deals.

At the time, the Siem Marlin was awarded a 150-day charter for an undisclosed client in South America.

The Siem Marlin is a diesel-electric driven vessel equipped with a 100-tonne heave compensated offshore crane. It is specially designed for ROV and light construction duties. The vessel, built by Kleven Yard, is 93.60 meters long and 19.70 meters wide.
