SPECIALIST MARINE SERVICES

Specialist Marine Services is based in Hull UK, formed from the rump of the old Humber based tug and salvage company United Towing.  It appears from available information that they manage ships for a number of owners and they have some real classics on their books.

Now they seem to have given up all that sort of stuff, so the vessels below are in fact disposals, and they are concentrating on harbour towage, although they advertise all sorts of services. (May 2010)

OSA TYPE STATESMAN BUILT: 1976 ELSFLETHER

The Statesman (formerly Sun Wrestler) is seen here discharging deep water riser the the semi-submersible Benreoch back in 1994 when she was supporting the rig off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean.

This ship was burnt out in 1990 when it was probably the Schnoorturm and was purchased by Eide the well known Norwegian second hand marine equipment dealer. It was originally a sister vessel to what is now the Englishman though there are now limited similarities except for the plant.

During the rebuilding she was lengthened and was provided with a completely new superstructure and a new winch as well as an additional azimuthing thruster. She is provided with a retractable towing pod which appears missile like from beneath the main deck.
