The vessel Global Gem, formerly known as Berjaya Fortune is a coastal oil tanker designed by GB Marine. The vessel has been designed for carrying bunkering fuel to vessels offshore. The vessel design features facilitates it being able to operate within shallow waters by the coast and to transport and offload bunker fuel efficiently. The primary use of this type of coastal oil tanker is to supply bunker fuel to larger vessels located further offshore who are unable to approach the coast due to shallow waters.
