Bullara

Built in 2000 with a length of 31m and beam of 11.24m, Svitzer Australia’s Bullara came to The Yard Brisbane in July 2020. With areas of rust, decay, and corrosion, The Yard Brisbane quickly got to work restoring this 20-year-old vessel. From reviving hinges and gates, to repairing broken bolts and hatches, The Yard Brisbane was able to cosmetically and functionally bring this tug back to life. In terms of mechanical labour, the fuel tank was also inspected, cleaned, and revitalized. Other corroded areas like the deckhouse, hull, and railings were also inspected and repaired.
