“VAYA II”: The new state of art tug of Zouros Group

In June of this year, Agaion Marine Ltd, of the Zouros Group, received the ASD T/B “VAYA II” (4400 Bhp). This vessel, purchased from German owners Fairplay a year earlier, was essentially rebuilt in a shipyard in Tuzla, Turkey, with own funds. All electrical, electronic and computing systems, inter alia, were replaced by automated modern technological equipment.

This venture was part of the new philosophy and investment program of the Group for Greece and the surrounding areas. The goal of the program is to gradually substitute the fleet with newly built and modern ASD tug boats which will be able to cater for the more demanding operations in harbor terminals as well as function as offshore support vessels. In this strategic geographic area the Group is investing on the potential benefits of synergies with the “Vernicos Tugs” companies, particularly after the creation of a Joint Venture entity with said companies for the provision of tug boat services. In this context the group intends for the vessel to start its service under the Greek flag, operating in Greek ports.
