To sail under the flag of Antigua and Barbuda, "Fairplay-33" is the strongest tug in Fairplay"s fleet. The tug will be employed for offshore work as well as for long distance tows.
Both "Fairplay-33" and her identical sister "Fairplay-32", still under construction and due for delivery mid-September, were originally ordered at Daewoo Romania by a Hamburg-based family. Early in 2011, the owner and Fairplay Towage agreed to jointly operate these tugs. Fairplay bought "Fairplay-33" from its partner and will take over the full management of "Fairplay-32"
