The Lloyd's List Amver Assisted Rescue At Sea shortlist

Lloyd's List has announced their shortlist for their Global Awards to be held at the London Hilton Park Lane on September 20, 2011. Amver has enjoyed a long relationship with Lloyd's List and nominates vessels for the Amver Assisted Rescue at Sea Award. We typically identify ten ships for special awards and they are submitted to Lloyd's List for review. The night of the awards ceremony the winner is announced. This year we took a different approach, aligning with the rest of the Lloyd's List awards and announce a "shortlist" of three award nominees.

Here are the vessels nominated for the Lloyd's List Amver Assisted Rescue at Sea Award, sponsored by Inmarsat.

  • M/V Crystal Pioneer & M/V Hokuetsu Delight for the rescue of 64 students from the Canadian sailing vessel Concordia which sank 344 miles off the coast of Rio de Janiero.
  • M/V Torm Esbjerg for the rescue of a lone sailor and his dog after their sailboat caught fire and sank.
  • M/V Vega for the rescue of the crew of the factory fishing vessel Athena.
Congratulations to all the Amver nominees! Thank you Lloyd's List and Inmarsat for continuing to recognize the efforts of Amver seafarers.
