General Details

PACIFIC PROVIDER is the product of a collaboration between Captain Stan Antrim and Naval Architect Boris Kiriloff.  This conversion is a superb megayacht support vessel. However, PACIFIC PROVIDER was further upgraded by a California fishing club in order to support long-term sport-fishing expeditions to Mexico and Central America. It has tropical AC systems, a walk-in freezer, commercial ice machines, and massive live-bait wells.

This support vessel can carry all of a megayacht’s toys, and more; freeing up valuable deck space on the yacht. The stowage provided effectively increases the range of a megayacht, by providing a re-fueling platform; and it also increases the duration of voyages with large, walk-in freezers, a full repair facility, and housing for additional support and security personnel. The 'tried and true'  Offshore Supply Vessel used in this conversion is universally recognized for its capabilities in all types of weather and its  enormous stowage capacities. Built of heavy-gauge steel, OSVs are ubiquitous in the North Sea and along the Gulf Coast. Their decks are frequently stacked 20 feet high and taller with heavy piping and they are originally built with huge, below-decks tanks where hundreds of tons of liquid required for offshore drilling was stowed. This space has now been converted for more pleasurable pursuits.

An Owner's imagination is all that is needed to apply this vessel for other uses. It can also be operated as a stand-alone SUV style expedition vessel capable of world exploration. In this capacity, its rugged exterior will serve well in ports where a pristine yacht exterior might draw unwanted attention, or suffer from confrontations with commercial pier facilities.

This vessel costs less than half of what a current conversion would cost. It is turn-key and ready to head out on an adventure. Load it up with an array of toys and off you go.
