Experts, which (ship) horn is this?

Postby Tyfon Hawk » Sun May 13, 2018 4:23 pm

Hello Everyone

Would any experts here know what horn or horns are fitted to MV National Geographic Endeavour?
Class 2 Vessel, 89 metres. IMO 6611863. Built 1966 in Germany as trawler Marburg, converted to passenger vessel Lindmar in 1983.
Sorry, but I don't have any video links to the ship's horn blasting.

The horn looks like a Kahlenberg Triton S-120 but it curves over the opposite way.

I look forward to reading your suggestions.

Hello Tyfon,

This is the very same horn as the link on Markplaats I previously sent you.

Zöllner ZetHorn 110.
Piston horn
Electric, 380V

Heavy duty, built like a tank and not that really sexy for us, air horns addicts, but a ship horn anyway and a damn loud noise maker.

Generally speaking, but not that realy true now, with the chinese stuff, what is built in Germany is built 100% german!!!

Cheers

Thanks for your input, Big Horns Hunter

It must be the older, double curved over type.
The vessel class though, is class II (130-350hz horn range) as the vessel is only 89m.
Does the 110 refer to something other than hertz because the regulations state the pitch must be higher than 130hz
If it exists, I suggest that it is the 130hz version. Perhaps the older 131AC or 141AC, if they exist, that is.

It would be fitting that the horn was a Zöllner, as this ship was built in Germany.
