The Mallard, the third vessel HUDSHIP has built for Lamnalco, has sailed for the Arabian Gulf, where she will operate out of Sharjah, U.A.E.

The living areas are designed and arranged to provide spacious accommodations f o r each crewman. Three 4-man staterooms are provided on the main deck, and two 2-man staterooms are located on the fo'c'sle deck.

The Mallard's sister ship Teal was launched from ceremonies on HUDSHIP's east bank yard with the crew of the Mallard watching just prior to their departure for the Arabian Gulf.

Lamnalco has greatly increased its fleet of owned and managed vessels in the last year, and they are especially proud of retaining their position as one of the market leaders in the highly competitive field of offshore supply charters in the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea.

Hudson Shipbuilders, Inc., a division of the HUDCO Group, is nearing completion on the expansion of its west bank facility.

New translation rails, launchways, and bulkheads are in the final stages of completion and are keeping pace with the construction of the large offshore supply vessels under contract at the west bank.
