Tomini bulker crew display excellent seamanship to carry out rescue at sea

Tomini bulker crew display excellent seamanship to carry out rescue at sea

(Posted on 11/04/23)

On the 31 March 2023, Tomini Shipping’s vessel Tomini Dynasty carried out a heroic rescue at sea, 60 Nautical Miles off the East Coast of Malaysia (Sabah Region).

The ship’s crew coordinated a successful rescue of 11 Malaysian nationals (4 men, 4 women and 3 children) after their boat capsized and drifted into Philippines waters. The survivors were 3 days adrift at sea before being noticed and rescued by the Tomini Dynasty crew.

The survivors are a family from Tawau, Malaysia and were on their way to Semporna, Malaysia to attend a funeral using their boat. During the passage they encountered bad weather and the boat toppled over, filled with water and the engine got damaged.

Tomini Shipping reported that all the survivors rescued by the vessel are healthy and initial medical assistance onboard was provided along with food and accommodation. Following contact with Malaysian Authorities and MRCC, Tomini crew coordinated the safe disembarkation of all 11 survivors with Naval vessel. All 11 Survivors were handed over to the Malaysian Naval Vessel “KD Paus” along with their damaged boat.

The management at Tomini have extended their congratulations to the crew of Tomini Dynasty for their excellent seamanship and demonstrating the duty to rescue at sea. “The actions of the Tomini Dynasty crew evidence of their commitment not only to the profession but also protecting the lives of others. These seafarers are a credit to Tomini Shipping and themselves.”

Tomini Shipping has traditionally been a fully integrated ship owner and operator and has been involved in every aspect of the shipping market including ownership, technical management and crew management for over 70 years.

Tomini’s fleet stands at around 26 bulk carriers including Ultramaxes, Kamsarmaxes and Handymaxes with an average age of five years.
