Last Friday 2nd February the voyage of the newbuild Sanmar Traktor Z-2500 design 25.3 metres long tug DELICAY XIV started her delivery voyage to her German operator H. Schramm Towage.

She will be christened as BO named after the three-year-old godson of H. Schramm Towage owner Hans Helmut Schramm. She entered Augusta, Sicily where she was photographed for sheltering due to weather conditions last Thursday 8th February.

With length overall (loa) of 25.3m and a beam of 12m, BO has been designed for escort, ship-handling, or terminal support duties and has Fi-Fi 1 fire-fighting capability.
Powered by two high-speed, electronically controlled, EPA Tier lll and IMO Tier ll compliant CAT 3516C HD D-rated marine diesel engines, BO can achieve an impressive 75-ton bollard pull and  free running speed of 12 knots.
She was built at Sanmar’s purpose-built environmentally- friendly Altinova Shipyard in the heart of the Turkish maritime sector.
