Fire suppression is Co2- tanks in lazaret. System was just overhauled by Firex, Inc. Boat was wired to high standards by Marine Electric a very professional company based in New Bedford, MA. All motors are American made by Baldor. Generators are 40KW and a 21KW marinized Kubota- both new in October 2010 (best gensets). Emergency bilge pumps, two air compressors, two air tanks, Diesel fuel pump with 50' of hose to fuel cranes and equipment on the job. Four valves to select which fuel tank to pull from, Fuel capacity is 6,000 gallons. Very custom fuel filter containment and change area. Any spillage is automatically collected and routed to a valve that drains into a pail for proper disposal. There is no free flow of fuel into the bilge. Also we installed a catch under the stuffing box with an automatic pump. The packing leaks very little, but just enough, so this system keeps the salt water out of the bilge when steaming, also (bilges are color white). The captain walks around the engine room with his socks on.
Two large (about 12' long) Fernstrum keel coolers installed for main engine also smaller Fernstrum installed for gensets. Towing hawser is new last year. 720 feet 2 5/8" Maxie Flex with thimble one end. Electric heat and electric domestic water heater.

  Vessel refurbished over a two year period at the dock in Massachusetts. To include but not limited to yacht quality carpentry, complete engine room modernization to include all new systems.  Every wire, pipe, motor, system etc. was removed from vessel and replaced with a modern unit.  Detail to workmanship on this boat inside is breathtaking.  All unnecessary steel hangers and grommets were ground down flat and the engine room 40,000 psi blasted and painted white.  The vessel is a working tug that has tremendous  towing power while at the same time is yacht quality throughout.

Located in Massachusetts.
