Graham Gulf: Bigger is Better

Thursday, June 04, 2009

Earlier this year C&G Boat Works Inc. launched the Gulf Princess for owner . Originally conceived as a 175 by 34-foot vessel the decision was made during construction to add a ten-foot extension bringing the vessel length to 185-feet.

The original power package was retained. This included four1800-hp Cummins KTA50-M main engines turning 48-inch propellers through ZF 4650 gears with 2.5:1 reduction. A Cummins 6CTA8.3DM engine powers the Thrustmaster TH250RT retractable bow thruster. Two Cummins 85 KW 6BTA5.9DM/Newage generator sets supply the vessels electrical requirements.

The Gulf Princess is DP-1 rated with a system supplied by Kongsberg. A sister vessel, to be named the Sybil Graham, is currently in build for delivery in the third quarter of 2009. The Sybil Graham will be classed DP-2.
