$25,000 Reward: RV Saigon Pandaw

RV Saigon Pandaw
For information leading to the recovery of the RV Pandaw Saigon

It was originally reported that the vessel had sunk while under tow, but it is possible the near-new ship was stolen en route from Vietnam to Singapore.

In an appeal to maritime and travel industry contacts, Pandaw founder Paul Strachan wrote: "I expect you will have heard rumours that the Saigon was stolen in an act of piracy rather than sunk. I cannot comment. But we have offered a reward for any information that might lead to its recovery. Please pass the reward notice to any contacts you might have, particularly in Indonesia. Meanwhile, we have investigators working on the ground."
