Reylaver’s new tug christened ‘Jesus’
Reylaver has received the latest addition to its fleet, an ASD Tug 2411 named ‘Jesus’.
Reylaver ordered the new vessel from Damen Shipyards Group in April 2015.
After the construction phase at Damen Shipyards Changde, she made a major journey starting in Shanghai, via Japan to Dutch Harbor in Alaska, through the Panama Canal, before finally arriving Veracruz, Mexico on June 9. The vessel covered 10,500 nautical miles on her own keel.
Following her arrival, the vessel was named ‘Jesus’ on July 18.
The vessel, a standard design from the Damen portfolio, received a number of custom features in order to meet the needs of the client, including adaptations to her accommodation.
The ASD 2411 measures 24 metres long, has an 11-metre beam, and a 70-tonne bollard pull which is preferred for harbour operations.
