It's been a while since the last time I posted a new ship drawing.
So, I thought it's time to do something about it (even if on a small scale).
firefighting boat has been purchased in 2015 by Szczecin port authority as a replacement for Strażak-24
in service since 1977. Purchased was largely funded from EU sources, but for several years it was constantly dropped to "reserve list" until suddenly in mid-2015
it turned out (thanks to bureaucratic mess-up), that Brussels will finally provide the funding, but under condition that the ship will be delivered by the end of the year. For obvious reasons it meant that building from scratch a dedicated vessel is out of the question, so it was decided to buy instead an unfinished hull and quickly have it completed. Winner of the contest of offers was Turkish shipyard Gisan Gemi İnşa Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş, with a tugboat of the CND 32,5m - 70TBP project from Spanish company Cintranaval-Defcar.
Modification works proceeded rapidly and the ship was launched on 20 November 2015 and on 17 December 2015 transferred officialy to Polish hands (although physically ship reached Szczecin only in January).
