CURRENT SAILING SCHEDULE
Antillean Marine adds a third Tugboat to its operations: Captain Babun
Back in April of 2016, Antillean Marine added a Tugboat service to its operations in an effort to provide a better service to its customers. For decades Antillean depended on the schedule and availability of third-party towing companies to tug its vessels in and out of the river. Nowadays, Antillean enjoys the flexibility of schedule that have a private and exclusive towing service can offer, Initially, Antillean's tugboat service (performed through a sister company, namely, Miami River Towing Company) had two Tugboats: Sara and Pepin. Today, Antillean and Miami River Towing Company are proud to announce the addition of yet another Tugboat to its service, the mighty Captain Babun.
Captain Babun is the most powerful Tugboat out of the fleet. It boasts a 1,450 HP engine, a length of 62 feet, a breath of 24 feet, and it is 86 GRT/69 NRT.
This powerful Tugboat will provide additional flexibility to Antillean, which will translate into a better and timelier service for its customers. This new addition is yet another example of Antillean's commitment to its customers.
Antillean Marine Christens the latest addition to its fleet: M/V Babun Express
Antillean Marine christens Babun Express in celebration of the most recent addition to its fleet of vessels serving its cargo shipping flagship location on the Miami River. Ms. Babun adds; “As a key transit point, the Miami River represents a renewed opportunity for Antillean Marine cargo shipping throughout the Caribbean and the region.” “Miami’s working river represents generations of trade and commerce, as well as, vessel repair and maintenance and marinas. We intend on continuing the working river legacy and the economic diversity the Miami River marine industry provides our community.”
The most recent Biscayne Bay Economic Study, South Florida Water Management District, reports the Miami River marine industries generated a $2.9 billion dollar output, $1.5 billion in income, 24,000 related jobs and $136 million in tax revenues to the State of Florida.
Antillean adds a Tugboat Service to its Operations
In an effort to provide a more efficient and timely service to its customers, Antillean is tugging its vessels independently. Until now, Antillean used third-party companies to tug its vessels in and out the Miami River. These vendors service several other customers in the river and their availability and schedules did not always match Antillean's needs.
Through a sister company, Miami River Towing Company, Antillean can now enjoy the freedom and flexibility of having a dedicated and exclusive towing service. Two steel hull tugs, namely, Pepin (76 GRT/51 NRT; 54.0 length, 22.0 breadth; HP 900) and Sara (97 GRT/66 NRT; 58.9 length, 24. breadth; HP 900) will be towing Antillean's fleet exclusively from now own, A third tugboat (HP 1200) will be arriving later this year.
Antillean Marine Replaces older vessels with newer and more efficient ones
Two cargo shipping vessels add to Antillean Marine Shipping fleet capacity. M/V Pepin Express (2035 GRT/1168 NRT/205 TEUs; 295.2 feet in length; 45.1 foot beam; HP 2414) and M/V Sara Regina: 2035 GRT/1168 NRT/205 TEUs; 295.2 feet in length; 45.1 foot beam; HP 2414) will replace M/V Sara Express and M/V Rumba. The capacity of these added vessels reflects an overall increase of and additional 150 TEUs. The increased vessel HP allows for faster service--cutting 12 to 15 hours off their travel time between key Caribbean ports-of-call and Miami.
Antillean Marine Continues its efforts to renew its container fleet
Antillean Marine is expanding its overall cargo capacity by adding over 1,000 new container units to its fleet. The majority of these units are being built overseas and will be delivered to Antillean's facilities in Miami in batches beginning in 2015 and all the way through the 3rd quarter of 2016. The new units include 20', 40', & 45' containers as well as 100 brand new flat-racks.
This is just another example of the company's commitment to providing a best-in-class service to its customers.
Aye, Aye Captain Babun!
