Phil ,
one of two brand new Zamakona Shipyards, Bilbao built rescue, anti contamination & salvage tugs for the Spanish "Salvamento Maritimo" ( Maritime Rescue) .
Otherwise known as the Coastguard.

"This is the Maria Zambrano".,yard No.619.

This and her sister the "Don Inda" have been built as Spanish Government stand-by salvage tugs, as a direct result of the " Prestige" tanker sinking off the NW Spanish Coast a few years ago, when no salavge tugs were in close proximity to the stricken vessel.

Regards,
Rick
