The German flagged semi-submersible heavy lift vessel Condock V arrives in Falmouth on September 4 to unload a yacht at the docks.
The vessel will berth on County Wharf. At high water she will ballast down, allowing her stern door to open and the yacht to be floated out.
The three dock ships Condock II, Condock IV and Condock V are primarily equipped for the world-wide shipment and transportation of floating units as well as oversized and heavy ro-ro cargoes with a maximum unit weight of 2,000 tons and heavy-lift cargoes of up to 200 tons.
