Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Twenty Grand Marine Service, L.L.C. of New Orleans, Louisiana sells U.S. flag supply vessel “Toby Tide” to Ocean Marine Services, Inc. of Kirkland, Washington.

The vessel is being renamed “Sovereign” and upon the vessel's arrival from Port Hueneme to Seattle, she was promptly drydocked in preparation to start working in Alaska.

The ABS +A1 (E) +AMS classed, 180’ x 40’ x 14’ supply vessel was built in 1980 by Halter Marine in New Orleans. She is powered by a pair of CAT D399TA diesel engines producing a total of 2,250HP, turning 76” x 70” props through Reintjes WAV 1400 gears which generates a max speed of 12kn and cruising speed of 10kn. Maneuverability is enhanced by a 300 HP Murray Tregurtha BT340 bow thruster.

The 993.8 dwt “Toby Tide’s” capacities include 94,300g fuel, 24,400g potable water, 180,400g drill water, 4,000ft3 dry bulk in 4 tanks, 1,230BBL liquid mud and 640 long tons of deck cargo on her 111' x 30' clear aft deck. Ship’s power is supplied by a pair of 125kW, 450vAC, 60Hz generators powered GM8V71 diesels.

Air conditioned accommodations are provided for a crew of 20 in eight cabins with galley seating for 10 people.

Interestingly, the vessel is being renamed “Sovereign”, after the first 3,900BHP, 185’ AHTS which Marcon International (Ship Brokers) sold to these owners from Offshore Logistics, Inc. twenty-two years ago.
