Marcon International, Inc. of Coupeville, Washington announced the long-term bareboat charter of a 2011 built 5,364BHP ocean ASD tug on a private and confidential basis.

The 32.0m x 11.6m x 5.4m tug was built in 2011 and is classed Lloyds Register + 100A1 Tug LMC, FiFi 1. Powered by a pair of CAT 3516Bs driving stern mounted Schottel SRP1515FP azimuthing props, the tug is capable of 75 metric tons of bollard pull and a free running speed of about 13 knots. The tug will be employed docking ships in Latin America.

Marcon acted as sole broker in this charter and the second charter which we have arranged for this tug in the region. Marcon currently has two other 65-ton bollard ASD tugs fixed on long-term charters in Latin America. An additional 72-ton bollard pull ASD tug is expected to commence a similar long-term charter next week.

Marcon has concluded a total of eleven sales and charters to-date in 2013, including six tugs with a total horsepower of over 22,000BHP.

Several additional sales and charters are pending and expected to close within this next week.
