Just two years after delivery of multipurpose workboat Salim Duzgit, Sanmar has lengthened it by almost 5 m for the Turkish owner
Sanmar built this vessel in 2019 for Düzgit Group as the first of its Poyrazkoy class of utility workboats.
In 2020, the Turkish shipyard extended Salim Duzgit from its original 19.8 m length to 24.7 m by adding a mid-hull section to extend the working deck and increase capacity.
Naval Architect Robert Allan assisted in this extension project by designing the original vessel and the middle section. “When we designed the original boat, we included a short section of parallel midbody just in case lengthening was ever contemplated,” said Robert Allan. “And sure enough, it was lengthened by inserting a new section at that point.”
After completion, the workboat was refinished and repainted and now shows no signs of its previous shorter life.
Salim Duzgit has a similar moulded breadth of 7 m, moulded hull depth of 2.8 m and navigational draught of 2.8 m. It still has accommodation for four workers, fuel oil capacity of 7 m3 and potable water tank of 2 m3. But its deck area has increased from 55 m2 to 82 m3 and now it has 122.7 lightship tonnes and displacement of 140.4 tonnes.
During the original build, Sanmar included a 12-seater passenger saloon for personnel transportation and a Kama knuckle-boom deck crane for cargo loading and unloading.
This vessel was originally built to a Robert Allan RAlly 1900-SX design as a twin-screw utility vessel. It has a pair of Volvo D13, 404 kW main engines that drive two fixed-pitch propellers with four blades and 94-cm diameter and Kort nozzles for better towing performance, giving Salim Düzgit a top speed of 11.5 knots.
This 125-gt vessel can be used for towage, cargo transportation, crewing services, marine construction and maintenance work, navigation aids maintenance and anchor handling for which a towing hook and winch can be added.
Salim Düzgit has Ermaksan fendering for tugboat operations and a 27.5-kWe Cummins generator set.
