Marcon International, Inc. of Coupeville, Washington reported that Tiong Woon Marine Pte. Ltd. of Singapore has sold their 3,000BHP twin screw tug Tiong Woon Ocean 15 (ex-Uni Haul Ruth) to Latin American interests.

The 31.0m x 9.0m x 4.5m depth / 3.5m draft tug was built in 2005 by Nanindah Mutiara Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia and classed LR +100A1 Tug, +LMC with all surveys and certificates up-to-date. Tiong Woon Ocean 15 is powered by a pair of CAT 3512B-DITA diesels totaling 3,000BHP at 1,600RPM with Twin Disc MG5506 6:1 gears and four-blade fixed pitch manganese bronze props in fixed kort nozzles. Bollard pull is approximately 40 metric tons. Her towing gear consists of a 100-metric-ton brake electro-hydraulic, single drum winch, 42mm main and 40mm spare tow wires, two 40mm pennant wires, wire bridles, other miscellaneous shackles and deck inventory. There is tankage for abt. 220m3 fuel and 51 metric tons fresh water, which gives her a range of approximately 22 days continuous. Air conditioned accommodations are provided for crew of 12 in five cabins.

Tiong Woon Ocean 15 recently completed a two year charter in North Africa before being shipped back to Southeast Asia as a dry tow, after which she underwent intensive maintenance, survey and repair. The tug worked on a contract to an oil major in Malaysia right up to a few days before her delivery to new Owners, and reportedly she had a very good track record with charterers.

This was the first sale Marcon has handled for the Buyer and Seller and we look forward to concluding many more in the future with both. The tug is currently underway on her approx. 10,000nm delivery voyage crewed and managed by TOS Ship Delivery BV in The Netherlands.

Buyers have requested that their name be kept confidential for commercial reasons.
