Hi Guys,

I was at a vessel naming ceremony last week of a new vessel in the North Caspian and she has no less than 5 schottel units, nice project for someone!  See a photo of the yard model.

Brgds.

4 Caterpillar 3516 main engines, three main diesel electric drive schottels under the poop deck and then two more rectractable thrusters on the port and Starboard shoulders, again electric propulsion.  Estimated 50-55 TBP.

A very nice boat and well presented too.
