The Seaspan Protector was designed by Robert Allan Design Ltd. Seaspan ULC is the vessel’s owner and operator. With a length of 23 m. (76.5’), a breadth of 7.32 m. (24’) and a draft of 3.66m. (12’), the Protector is a heavy service towing vessel with a displacement of 149 tonnes (GRT).
After many years’ service, the original two-cycle main engines were replaced with Mitsubishi type S12A2 marine diesels. The new engines are in V-12 configuration and each has a displacement of 33.93 l. (2,071 CID).
Following a major refit in 2016, the Seaspan Protector, with her new Mitsubishi marine diesels, is ready for many more years of dependable and economical service on the British Columbia coast.
