Three new Damen Combi Freighters for Feyz Group

Three new Damen Combi Freighters for  Feyz Group

(Posted on 01/08/23)

Damen Shipyards and Turkey’s Feyz Group have signed a contract for the delivery of three new Damen Combi Freighters 3850 for delivery in early 2025. This agreement for new vessels represents a milestone for Damen, which is marking the first new build Cargo Vessel sales to a Turkish customer.

The highly successful Combi Freighter (CF) 3850 is a recently re-designed general cargo vessel with a deadweight of 3,850 tonnes. With a length overall of 89.70 metres and a 12.50-metre beam, it is capable of maintaining speeds of more than 10 knots in headwinds when fully loaded, due to the hydrodynamic properties of the hull shape. This delivers not only exceptional performance, it also results in it requiring less power than comparable vessels, leading to a smaller engine (1104 kW) that consumes considerably less fuel and requires less maintenance.

The cargo hold tank top strength is reinforced to carry 15 tonnes per square metre and the CF 3850 can carry up to 172 containers; 108 in the hold and 64 on deck. Movable bulkheads enable partial tween-decks flexibility, allowing a wide range of cargos to be carried on a single voyage.

The CF 3850 is built along with the other members of the Damen Combi Freighter range at the Damen Yichang Shipyard in China. Series construction enables competitive pricing of new-build vessels while also guaranteeing the quality of the construction and allowing for any modifications required by clients.

“We see this moment as a start of a long term relationship with Damen” says Engin Aynaci, General Manager of Feyz Group.

“Turkey’s shipping operators represent the largest fleet in the world of cargo vessels of this size,” added Remko Bouma, Commercial Director Damen Cargo Vessels. “So we are delighted that Feyz Group, a leading Turkish ship management company, has chosen Damen Group for its latest freighters.”

Regional sales director, Boran Bekbulat said, “This is a significant moment for the market, marking the first time that a Turkish ship operator has bought newbuild cargo vessels. It will be pleasure seeing these vessels calling in at European ports under the excellent management of Feyz Group.”

Damen Shipyards Group has been in operation for over ninety years and offers maritime solutions worldwide, through design, construction, conversion and repair of ships and ship components. The company operates 35 shipyards and 20 other companies in 20 countries, supported by a worldwide sales and service network.
