Blue MarlingThe Blue Marlin (IMO: 9186338, Port of Registry: Willemstad, Dutch Antilles) is a semi-submersible heavy transport vessel managed by Dockwise Shipping and built in 2000 by China Shipbuilding. She was designed to transport very large semi-submersible drilling rigs. The vessel is equipped with 38 cabins to accomodate 60 people, a workout room, sauna and swimming facilities, has a deadweight capacity of 76,000 tons and an unobstructed deck area of 11,227 m2 (63 m x 178,2 m). The vessel has a maximum speed of 13.3 kts in ballast condition, which is capable due to the three Wartsila diesels which deliver a capacity of 3850 kW each. For better manoeuvring with heavy cargo and in rough weather conditions the Blue Marlin is equipped with two retractable Azimuth thrusters of 4500 kW.

The Blue Marlin will arrive this morning at the Elbehaven, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Las Palmas, Canary Islands.
