Van Wijngaarden Marine Services BV announces the sale of her tug/workboat LINGESTROOM (Imo 8433502) through the intermediary of Boogaard Sliedrecht BV, The Netherlands (S & P brokers, specialised in dredgers and floating equipment). The LINGESTROOM has been built at the "Scheepswerf Van Mill BV" in The Netherlands under number 132 in 1984. The vessel has been trading 'all over the world', but mainly in Spain and the Mediterranean to support dredging operations. On the picture(s) the vessel is on its way to Antwerp for shipment aboard as deckload to the Middle East / U.A.E. Dimensions: length 17.65 mtrs., beam 6.00 mtrs., draft 1.7 mtrs. and depth 2.45 mtrs. The two Caterpillar, type 3408 DITA diesel engines develops 660 kW (900 bHP) at 1800 rpm. She has a free sailing speed of 11 knots and a bollard pull of 15.0 tons. After 31 years of operation for our company, we wish the new owner: 'good business' and the new crew: 'safe journeys' with the "Stork II".
