Palumbo Launch 30m Tug 'Vervece'

Last week in Naples, the Palumbo Shipyard launched 'Vervece' a beautifully designed 30m (98ft) tug boat. The owner contacted the Palumbo yard to perform the conversion of this 1960s tug into a luxury exploring yacht. The conversion consisted of replacing the old hull plates and installing a totally new superstructure that blends perfectly with the tugs hull lines, this makes Vervece an 80% new build. Also all of her systems were overhauled and renewed.

She has a beam of 7.70m (25ft) and 2 Cummins engines with a power of 746Kw at 1,800rpm that bring her to a cruising speed of 12kts with a range of 3,000nm. She is now charter classed and MCA compliant.
