The 338-foot Oceanic Grace en- tered service this past April as Ja- pan's first domestic luxury cruiser.

Ordered by Oceanic Cruise Ltd. during 1987, Oceanic Grace was built by Nippon Kokan K.K. (NKK) at its Tsu Works. The ship flies the Japanese flag and is classed with the Japanese classification so- ciety NK. The Dutch firm of Studio

Acht worked for the vessel's concep- tual design, exterior styling and in- terior design.

The Oceanic Grace was con- structed to meet increasing leisure enthusiasm in Japan in recent years and was designed to offer passen- gers the pleasure of cruising in a pri- vate yacht-like atmosphere. It has deluxe cabins all located forward, away from the engines, all with a private bath and all with a view.

The passenger public space has a total area of 900 m2, unusually spa- cious for a passenger ship of this size. Deck 3 houses a 120-seat res- taurant which serves meals on one- sitting basis. The areas include a lounge, bar, small lounge, shop, li- brary, sauna, gymnasium, and beau- ty parlor.

In order to limit noise and vibra- tions, finite element analysis was used to identify any potential prob- lem areas regarding vibration and the NKK's noise prediction system called "Cabinoise" was employed.

The system works by input of all known noise sources into a comput- er program with details of structural arrangements and interior materi- als. By adoption of these systems and proper countermeasures, the

Oceanic Grace has achieved excel- lent passenger comfort even cruising at full speed.

The main propulsion system con- sists of Wartsila Vasa diesel engines, type 16V22HF, each with an output of 3,530 hp at 1,000 rpm. The main engines are coupled with two single



The Pula, Yugoslavia shipyard of

Uljanik Shipyard delivered the sec- ond in a series of three 40,200-dead- weight product tankers, the Osco

Star, to the Osco Carriers Pool, input/output gearboxes to turn two shafts with fully hydraulically oper- ated, highly skewed four-bladed

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries CP propellers.

To improve operability in har- bors, flap-type high-lift rudders are equipped and both wings of bridge is provided with joy-stick (single lever) control stands for engine,

CPP, rudder, and bowthruster oper- ation. under the commercial management of Osco Shipping A/S.

The Osco Star, like her sister ships, will serve to widen the scope and flexibility of the pool which cur- rently totals 11 vessels. The three sisters from Uljanik reflect the Osco policy of constant fleet renewal and improvement with the emphasis placed firmly on economy, efficien- cy and capacity, qualities which have enabled the company to estab- lish a reputation as a world leader in specialist oil/chemical trades.

Classed by Det norske Veritas as

A1 Tanker for Oil and Caustic Soda,

EO, COW, Inert, the 577-foot Osco

Star is propelled by a MAN B&W-

Uljanik slow-speed, long-stroke, di- rect reversible, constant turbo- charged 5L50MC diesel engine. The specified power for propulsion with- out the shaft generator is 9,225 hp at 111 rpm. Maximum continuous out- put is 10,500 hp. The specific fuel consumption is 170 g/kwh. The four-bladed, fixed propeller was supplied by Lips BV.

Auxiliary engines comprise two 6ATL250 Jugoturbina-Sulzer diesel engine sets, each developing 1,200 kw at 900 rpm. The generators are

Uljanik-built Siemens type S7198 with nominal power of 1,350 kva.

The Osco Star has a molded beam of 105 feet, depth of 49.5 feet, sum- mer draft of 36.8 feet deadweight at design draft of 34,300 dwt and dead- weight at summer draft of 40,200 dwt.

Her cargo tanks are laid out in a configuration with six center tanks and 14 wing tanks with an aggregate capacity of 45,000 m3 when 100 per- cent filled. Wing tanks No. 3 port and starboard are for segregated ballast, and the two small tanks aft of No. 6 port and starboard are slop tanks for cargo. Segregated ballast is carried in the fore peak tank, dou- ble bottoms beneath all cargo tanks,

No. 3 port and starboard wing tanks and the after peak tank. (continued)
