On Saturday, July 13 the cruise vessel Carnival Vista was floated onto the heavy-lift submersible vessel Boka Vanguard to be transported to the Grand Bahama Shipyard for repairs. It was the first time this type of operation had been undertaken anywhere in the world. KOTUG Seabulk Maritime’s (KSM) SD Calypso served as one of the five assist tugs required for the float-on operation.
Three KSM tugs also assisted with the float-off on July 20, the SD Calypso, SD Junkanoo and the RT Blackbeard.
Kudos to the entire team for making this a successful operation!
