1978 Custom Pneumatic Bulk Cement Carrier


Unknown,Dominican Republic

  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details


This is a 4,270 DWT self-unloading cement carrier with an onboard pneumatic load/unloading system. The vessel has been totally upgraded since its new ownership in May 2010, including a change of over 50,000 kilos of steel, a total overhaul of most equipment in the engine department and on the bridge, and has undergone a complete renewal of DNV class, including dry docking. The vessel passed DD Nov 2011, SS in March 2012 and received all new and clean worldwide certificates free from any class and flag state recommendations. As the vessel is now in semi lay-up however, a few items have become overdue. These items will be dealt with, Class will then be brought in and issue new certificates prior to a sale. Class will be changed at that same time, as DNV is too strict for vessels of this age, so another but well recognized organization will be chosen. The Pneumatic System was totally overhauled in 2012 and should be in excellent condition. Vessel can be inspected by appointment.
