10.50-meter auxiliary craft with a 3.08-meter beam, a depth of 1.30 meters and weighing 8.98 tons. From the Pilots’ Corporation of Barcelona, it was built in 1985 at the Mare Nostrum shipyards in Barcelona.

Even though this boat is recent in its design, materials and the construction technique used, the Pollux conserves the standards of pilot boats from the 1930s, and as a result it is a testimony to the boats used in the port of Barcelona for almost 70 years. In 2001, when the boat was in disuse, it was given to the Maritime Museum of Barcelona by the Pilots’ Corporation of the Port of Barcelona.
