The Marsden Bay has now been delivered and has entered service for North Tugz at Northport in New Zealand. The 17.00m tug was designed by Macduff Ship Design Ltd and built by Boustead Langkawi Shipyard. The vessel was originally based on the successful Sally Mcloughlin however, this new design, produced to the specific requirements of North Tugz, increased the overall size of the vessel to 17.00m length 8.00m breadth and 3.60m depth, boasting an impressive 28 ton bollard pull.  The vessel is driven by two Cat C32 main engines which drive 2.0m propellers in fixed nozzles supplied by Kort Propulsion. Deck machinery comprises a forward towing winch with 30 ton capacity, 5 ton tugger winch and a 3 tonne Capstan all supplied by North Sea Winches, a deck crane with a 2.65 ton capacity at 7.90m and a Hydraulic Windlass.  The vessel is also fitted with two ‘H’ bitt bollards, one forward and a second aft of the wheelhouse, fitted with a 30 ton tow hook supplied by Mampaey.

These features leave the Marsden Bay a highly capable vessel in the class of small harbor tugs, more than able to carry out her standard towing, pushing, surveying and lifting operations.  Classed under BV and also built to conform to the stability regulations of Maritime New Zealand. The vessel is designed to be operated by a crew of two with over-night accommodation on board and large fuel and water capacities giving the vessel a lengthy endurance.
