Sanmar’s new custom-built, general purpose shipyard at Altinova, Turkey, has launched three 60-metric-ton bollard pull tugs on the same day, less than five months since work first started at the yard.

The trio of Bogacay Class tugs, designed by Robert Allan Ltd. exclusively for Sanmar, measure 24.4m x 11.25m and are the 12th, 13th and 14th of this ASD model equipped with Caterpillar engines driving Rolls-Royce Z-drives. Two different customers are involved.

Investment at the new shipyard continues alongside a production plan which includes 10 more vessels which, when added to the schedule laid down at Sanmar’s existing yard in Tuzla, will bring the company’s production for the year to 25.
