Penac was purchased in the UK in 2004. as a used vessel. Originally named Liv Viking, it was a passenger hovercraft ordered by Hovertravel of Copenhagen and carried the livery for SAS. Liv Viking never entered service as her route was replaced with bridge.
Sold back to the United Kingdom, it was purchased by the Government of Canada and converted to be used by the Canadian Coast Guard. The Liv Viking was stripped to its frame (to save paying design fees) and completely rebuilt to Canadian Coast Guard Specifications.
