ASRY Dry Dock Occupancy

Near 90 Percent

During First Quarter

The 263,516-dwt Texaco Japan in ASRY's drydock.

Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard

Co. (ASRY), Bahrain, recently re- ported first quarter 1990 results were "very satisfactory" with dry- dock occupancy close to 90 percent, ship repair sales above budget and operation profits above those of the corresponding quarter last year.

The fifth of five VLCCs recently sent to ASRY by Texaco Marine

Service, Port Arthur, Texas, was the

Texaco Caribbean.

ASRY added that major repairs this year included work on

K.O.T.C's 339,108-dwt ULCC Bu- biyan and the 124,100-dwt OBO Jag

Laxmi, owned by Great Eastern

Shipping Company of Bombay.

ASRY expects additional life ex- tension work as vessels reach their third Special Survey. ASRY has made a special study of owners' requirements for such work with a view to the systematic programming of repairs aimed at reducing costs by minimizing time spent on repairs.

NKK To Construct 430-Passenger

Icebreaker Cruise Ship

The Japanese shipbuilder Nippon

Kokan (NKK) recently announced that it will construct an icebreaker cruise ship to carry passengers into the frozen waters of the northeast- ern Hokkaido coast of Japan. The vessel, to be built at the Narasaki

Shipyard in Hokkaido, will begin service in January 1991.

The 499-gross-ton cruise ship will be 145 feet long with a 39-foot beam, and will carry 430 passengers. Its maximum speed will be 14.5 knots, and it will be able to break through ice nearly three feet thick.

Plans call for the vessel to have economy-class as well as special cab- ins equipped with, among other amenities, large video screens and special seating so that passengers can enjoy the scenery in comfort.

Cruises will originate from Aba- shiri Port in northeastern Hokkaido from January until mid-April.

Three routes are planned—from a short cruise around the harbor to a 15-mile trip into the Sea of Okhotsk, and trips selected according to ice conditions.
