Christening the "Sea Cheyenne" in Singapore
On October 27, 2007 Adrian, as the Lady Sponsor of the Ship, christened the Sea Cheyenne as part of its commissioning
and launching from the Keppel Singmarine Shipyards in Singapore where it was built.
The Sea Cheyenne, the newest vessel in the Gulfmark Offshore global fleet, is the first of a new class of deep water
anchor handling, tug and supply vessels operated by Gulfmark.
The ship is 250 feet in length, with a beam width of 55 feet and a total depth of 24 feet. It has dual props, with full dynamically positioning capability.
