Gulf Princess delivered by C&G BoatworksVessel & ROV News // June 4, 2009
Gulf Princess will be joined by a sister vessel, Sybil Graham.
Earlier this year C&G Boat Works Inc launched Gulf Princess for owner Graham Gulf. Originally conceived as a 175ft by 34ft vessel the decision was made during construction to add a 10ft extension bringing the vessel length to 185ft.
The original power package was retained. This included four 1,800hp Cummins KTA50-M main engines turning 48in propellers through ZF 4650 gears with 2.5:1 reduction.
A Cummins 6CTA8.3DM engine powers the Thrustmaster TH250RT retractable bow thruster. Two Cummins 85kW 6BTA5.9DM/Newage generator sets supply the vessel’s electrical requirements.
Gulf Princess is DP-1 rated with a system supplied by Kongsberg.
A sister vessel, to be named Sybil Graham, is currently in build for delivery in the third quarter of 2009. Sybil Graham will be classed DP-2.
