Additional Information:

This tug was built in Holland at Scheepswerf Schouten BV in 1972. She has a GM 12V71 main engine putting out 425hp which was overhauled/rebuilt and fitted in October 2012. She has a 3 blade propeller in a Kort Steering Nozzle with a 5:1 twin disk gearbox resulting in a 6.5tbp. In conjunction with a 50hp hydraulic bow thruster, she is an easy boat to manoeuvre.

The boat has been in our company since 2010 and has proved a reliable and capable tug/workboat carrying out many on site towing jobs around the country. She is Workboat Code Category 2 (60nm from a safe haven) and is being sold as we have bought a bigger and more powerful replacement.

She has 4 berths for occasional overnight use, a small galley and a toilet. There is a 10.5kva Lister air cooled generator providing 240vac throughout the boat. In the wheelhouse there is a GPS chartplotter, GMDSS VHF radio, radar, depthsounder, AIS and an autopilot. Steering can be carried out manually or by hydraulics controlled by a joystick.

On deck there is a hand operated anchor winch at the bow and a towpost with quick release towing hook on the aft deck.

All offers considered.


If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
