ISA Towage Celebrates Naming of New Damen Shoalbuster

The godmother of the ISA Mrs. Miranda Mastenbroek

The naming ceremony of ISA Towage BV’s new Damen Shoalbuster 3209 ‘ISA’ took place on Friday, 17 November, at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld (DSHa).

The godmother of the ISA was Mrs. Miranda Mastenbroek, wife of Willem-Harm Mastenbroek, owner and managing director of ISA Towage B.V.

The Shoalbuster 3209 is the second vessel to be purchased from Damen by ISA Towage B.V.

A smaller Shoalbuster 2709, also called ISA, was delivered at the close of 2016, and it has now been replaced by the 3209. The decision to make the upgrade is the result of an offer made to Willem-Harm Mastenbroek by Jos van Woerkum, managing director of DSHa.

When he offered us the opportunity to upgrade to a Shoalbuster 3209 that had just been just completed, it was just too good to miss,” said Willem-Harm Mastenbroek.

Shoalbusters are among the most versatile vessels in Damen’s unrivalled range of workboats.

The name references their ability to operate in shallow waters, but the 32-meter long, 9-meter wide ISA is also ready for a broad spectrum of operations including towing, mooring, pushing, anchor handling and dredging support.
