An LPG vessel experienced engine failure near the maiden tower at the entrance of Bosphorus yesterday, GAC said.

The incident occurred during the vessel’s southbound transit at 02:35 P.M. local time on February 12.

The ship in question is the 4,248 dwt Golden Sea, AIS data from MarineTraffic shows.

A tugboat was sent to ensure safe navigation in the strait.
