ASD Tugs Leo and Lily charters extended

These two 65 ton bollard pull ASD tugs were mobilised directly from their Singapore shipbuilders to Venezuela in early 2013.  Operating under Venezuelan flag and with local crew and support, these vessels have performed without problem since their arrival and we are pleased that the charterers have expressed their confidence by declaring options to extend for a further 12 months.
