This magnificent example of the Australian Shipbuilding Industry is now being offered for sale. This 32.2 m Ocean Going Rescue Tug was built in South Australia by Adelaide Ship Constructions International of Port Adelaide in 1968 for the Swan River Shipping Company. It was built to Lloyds 100A1 Certification and is probably best described as "Bullet Proof". It has accommodation for 12 in 7 cabins, 2 bathrooms, 2 mess rooms and a galley. It is powered by a 6 Cylinder Mirrlees KSS6MK6 turbo charged diesel engine developing 1560hp at 600RPM. It is surprisingly economical and despite weighing in at 232 tonnes empty uses 120 litres per hour at 8 knots, and 200 litres per hour towing 2000 tonnes at 8 knots. It is fully operational and despite its age the motor has done very little work and is believed to be only a quarter thru its working life. These motors still feature throughout the world in many applications and parts and service work are still readily available. The deck has plenty of area for storage or cargo, a midships towing point, a large windlass and deck crane. This boat which is currently privately registered but could go back into *survey and could fulfil any number of applications including offshore asia/pacific towing, island trading, charter vessel for extended charters including but not limited to surf safaris, backpackers, treasure hunting, research etc. It could easily operate as a Superyacht Shadow boat carrying all the toys, dive chambers, crew or what ever may be required. For the enthusiast or astute person it would make a wonderful platform for conversion into the ultimate Expedition/Superyacht that could take you anywhere you desired on the planet in comfort and in any sea state. It has capacities of fuel and water that give it a very good range. It is incredibly strongly built, robust and needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. This vessel is on the Gold Coast and can be inspected by appointment by calling the listing Broker Steve McCourt on 0427 732 237

"While all care is taken in preparing and providing this information, we accept no responsibility regarding its accuracy, prospective purchases need to undertake a full inspection themselves and/or engage suitably qualified professionals to do so. "
