Thun Blyth is the first vessel in the company’s fleet to be built in accordance with the “not always afloat but safely aground” (NAABSA) design principle. It has an LOA of 79.9 metres, a beam of 15 metres, a deadweight of 4,250 tonnes, and a cargo capacity of 4,800 cubic metres.

Shortly after delivery, Thun Blyth commenced serving a long-term charter with UK-based Geos Group.
