With the design of the NG Hemelrijk, Next Generation Shipyards is going back into the future. Within this touring tug the functionality of the layout is clearly visible. Next to that, the quality and charm of a ship’s shape has proven itself for decades. Because of the classic hull shape of the NG Hemelrijk only requires little motor power and draws almost no waves. The swept stern provides sufficient space for the propeller resulting in an easily released tracking current. The length of the NG Hemelrijk is 13.10m, the width is 4.05m, the draft is 0.80m and the vertical clearance is 2.45m.
The NG Hemelrijk is robust and heavy enough to offer safety and comfort. The glamor of the ship lays in the classic details, nostalgic windows, the cuckoo, a towing bet and thumbs at the bottom of the steel bollards. One of the special features of the NG Hemelrijk is the increasingly widening of the gangways to the front with extra space at the bollards. This is one of the features to ensure that the ship is very friendly to use.
The motorization of the NG Hemelrijk is determined in consultation with the customer. The exhibition model has a Volvo Penta D2-75 with generator function and a Mastervolt system. Other (innovative) motorization forms are also possible. Thanks to the construction and the hull shape of the NG Hemelrijk, it is perfect for cruising and drying on the mudflats. The NG Hemelrijk has a remarkably large space below deck and good height in all rooms. Next to that the layout is, needless to say, determined in consultation with the client.
The client of the Louise-Marie has opted for two cabins with four full sleeping place, a large living room with galley and a separate room for a shower, toilet and a sink in a separate room. The entire ship is equipped with under floor-heating.
