Today we have the tug Moritz (IMO: 9096454, Port of Registry: Brunsbüttel, Germany) as the Ship of the Day. This tug was built in 1971 by Schichau Seebeckwerft, Bremerhaven, Germany as the Neuende. The Neuende was the first of a series of three tugs of the "Klasse 724", especially built for the German navy. Her two sisters "Heppens" and "Ellerbeck" where sold to the greek navy in the 1990's. The vessel is 26 metres long, 7 metres wide, has a gross tonnage of 133. Her 588 kW engine gives the vessel a maximum speed of 11 knots and a bollard pull of 14 tons. The tug is currently owned by Hans Schramm & Sohn GmbH & Co. KG, Germany.

The Moritz entered the Port of Rotterdam this morning and is currently berthed at Dordrecht.
