In 2014, Martin Bencher has loaded a Bourbon Surfer 324 onto Bourbon Multi-Purpose Supply Vessel's deck in Singapore.
The Bourbon Surfer was to be transported to Walvis Bay, Namibia.
The Bourbon Surfer 324 is L 34.00 x W 7.00 x H 7.55 mtrs / 100 tons.
Bourbon 805 MPSV : Length overall: 100.20 m / Breadth moulded: 21.00 m / Depth: 8.00 m.
The lifting/loading was done by tandem lifts (2 x 500 tons mobile cranes) using a diving team to position under water soft belts underneath the surfer. The Bourbon Surfer 324 was then loaded onto cradles positioned on Bourbon 805 ‘s deck before hot work / lashing completion. One day operation was required at the port from 0700 hrs to 2300hrs.
