7,200BHP Tug "Hunter" Sold
Crowley Marine Services Inc. has sold one of their 7,200BHP Invader series tugs, "Hunter", to private Washingtonian interests. The vessel was built in 1976 as Hull # 224 at McDermott Shipyard Inc, Amelia, LA. The vessel measures 136.2' loa x 36.5' beam x 19.2' depth and is powered by twin EMD 20-645E5 diesels with Falk 4.345:1 gears driving two 132" x 82-88" 5-blade stainless props. Electrical service is provided by two 90kW CAT D3304 gensets. The tankage onboard includes 218,300g of fuel and 10,300g of water. On deck the towing equipment consists of a double drum Markey TDSDW 36C towing winch capable of spooling two lengths of 2,800' x 2.25" wire. The tug was the 21st Invader Class constructed by McDermott for Crowley. The "Hunter" is often referred to as the "fastest tug in the Puget Sound" due to its frequent tug race wins over the years at the Seattle Maritime Festival. Marcon acted as sole broker in the transaction and represents the 124th vessel brokered by Marcon for Crowley Maritime over the last 34 years.
