Pirates off Port Gentil, Gabon

2 December 2014 No.708

We have received the attached circular from Eltvedt & O’Sullivan, our correspondents in Marseille.


According to the circular, recently pirates have been sighted off Port Gentil, Gabon. The pirates use a fishing boat of 30 meters in length with a blue hull and white frames as mother vessel, and they are targeting large deadweight tankers.


Members who may trade their vessels to Gabon should exercise utmost caution.
