GLOBTIK TOKYO

IMO 7229942

1973 completed by Ishikawajima Harima Heavy Industries, Kure
for Globtik Tankers Ltd., London
213886GRT, 483.684tdw, 379m loa, 62m br., 45.000shp IHI 2 turbines geared to sc. shaft, 15kn

1986 broken up Ulsan

With her sister ship GLOBTIK LONDON in 1973 this pair were the largest ships ever built. Her owners were bankrupt soon as the tanker market collapsed in October 1973. The megalomania of the tanker operators lasted some 10 years. This size was later topped by 4 tankers built at St.Nazaire, France for Shell France and CNN and a few more.

I still remember my first sighting of this behemoth, or indeed anything like it. Must have been her maiden voyage or maybe soon after in 1973.
We were off South Africa heading East, calm seas, in a loaded 30000 ton bulk carrier and she was lightship, just like in this shot, heading for the Gulf. She overtook us a mile or so to port, but still seemed relatively close. The sheer size of her was very impressive.
Thanks for the memories.
Regards

Thanks gadgee. Impressive photo.

I am wondering how this very large tanker with single screw propulsion at 45.000shp was able to propel the vessel with little vibration or creation of foam when under ballast condition.

Regards
Thomas

Thanks 'Gadgee' for that extra photo.
At the time, seeing 'Globtik Tokyo' was something different, as you say she dwarfed every other ship around and, just as in your photo of the 'Globtik London', sailed serenely on. Like Thomas says, all on one screw. To a young officer, who always was a keen 'ship enthusiast' the sight was something I will never forget.
Again, Thomas, thanks for posting
Regards
