I have 3 ocean going tug models that were built for the Phillipine Company SALVTUG. These are glass encased models, that have the complete detailed information about the tug on a brass plate mounted on the base. The information that is missing is the date of construction and the ship builder. I am trying to find more information on these Tugs, but seem to run up against a brick wall since it appears that you need to belong to a database service to retrieve any information. If anyone can point in a direction that can help me find information on these tugs, I would really appreciate it. I have attempted to attach photos. If anyone would like additional photos, I would be glad to send them to you. Thanks in advance for any help provided.

grumento,

Welcome to the mad house!! You have posted one picture. It would be nice to see the others.

I am not sure whether you want information about the models or the full size boats. If the latter, then I expect we have people who can help out.........Are you awake yet Xtian29?? ;D ;D

Where are you based? If you go to your profile you can add your location to your avatar for us all to see..

Hello

This Malasugui looks like to be the IMO number 5422980 - following some info (Lekko 3000hp and over 1995 - tug 277 page 86) she's the former italian Vortice until 1979 and built in Italy at -1964. Following the RINA she's withdrawn from list in 2002. 

There is certainely pistures under her former name as she was working for Rimorchiatori Ruiniti from Genoa - Take care there is another a 1976 built Vortice.

On the title you are also talking about Tiburon and ranger 1 ?

As suggested, I have changed my profile to show we reside in Albany, California.   I have attached photos of all three tugs. To clarify, I am looking for information on the full size boats, however any information on the models would also be appreciated, including who made the models and the range of value of these models. The detail and craftsmanship of the models are absolutely stunning. Thanks to A+ Xtian for the information provided on the full size Malasugai. Is there any indication where she was built or who was the ship builder? As a newbie I have to ask what does "IMO" stand for?   Thanks again, hopefully more information will be forthcoming.

  • Tugs rule, OK!

Image 073 is certainly a lookalike for a 1960's Smit design. Definite shades of Zwarte Zee, Thames, Hudson et al...

And image 059 is definitely a 1960's Wijsmuller design, Jacob van Heemskerck, Groningen et al...

Curious.

Hello

You are right Andy, the Ranger I is a sister ship of the former Wijsmuller Jacob van heemskerk which was later the Hurricane II with Malayan.

The Ranger I is in fact the former Wijsmuller (Dutch flag) Willem Barendsz she was scrapped in 1988 by Malayan under the name of Ranger I

The real ship was built in The Netherlands as Willem Barendsz by De Klop Shipyard in 1963 - 52.7 meters long


 

 

A picture under the name of Ranger I (from Lekko)



The Tiburon is definitly the former Bugsier salvage tug (German flag) she's the former Atlantic (II) not the last and beautifull Atlantic (III)

The real ship was built in Germany as Atlantic (II) by Schichau Bremerhaven in 1958 - 62 meters long

A picture of the Tiburon 1 (Picture also from Lekko)



About the Malasugui as I said she's the former italian Vortice built in Italy by Cantiere Navali Benetti in 1964 - 55 meters long

IMO number (International Maritime Organisation) is a very important number to follow a ship during her career as this number never change. Unfortunuatly it's a quiete recent invention.  

About the models, for me they are not so good, they are not "shipbuilder model" (most of the time given "as gift" by the shipbuilder to the owner) I thing that ones are still in the office of the first owner German Bugsier, Dutch Wijsmuller and Italian Rimorchiatori Ruiniti.  

In fact I think more about  "second hand" owner model certainely built by local philippinos modeler. They are not much detailed... This kind of finition is acceptable for navigated model but not for static and specially "owner model" anyway I've seen worst !

Martin and Sea Monkey,

Thanks for your response and information. Martin you supplied a complete history on the Tiburon, do you have similar data for the Malasugui and Ranger 1?  Thanks again, Rich.
