Monday, September 3, 2018, Bosphorus Strait, Turkey

A small tugboat, MV Bersek, suffered an engine failure while transiting from South to north at the Bosphorus Strait at 03:45hrs local time.

The Istanbul VTS sent a tugboat, M/TUG Kurtama 3, to the incident location and thereafter towed M/TUG Berserk to the Buyukdere anchorage within the Bosphorus Strait.

M/TUG Berserk has dropped anchor in the Buyukdere bay at 04:45hrs local time and will wait to solve their engine failure together with the clearance from Harbour Master.
