GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – Damen Shipyards has released its new ASD Tug 3212 design. This is a new ship type, said Damen, with an 85 ton bolard pull capacity.

The new tugboat is designed to operate in all circumstances and features hundreds of big and small innovations, including a completely revised hull form and a higher bow, resulting in better speed and a dry foredeck. It has a maximum bollard pull of 85 tons, sails with 14.5 knots and it’s tested to operate in 3 m (10 ft.) wave height. Other features are, for example, super-absorbent fenders and a new Render/Recovery winch.

Four of the new 3212s have been delivered to clients in Australia, Colombia and the Netherlands, and 10 are currently under construction.
