Marco Seattle Signs Contract To Build All-Steel Workboat

Marco Seattle has signed a contract for the construction of a 64- foot twin-screw all-steel workboat to be built for Uaukewai Diving, Salvage and Fishing, Inc. of Honolulu, Hawaii.

The vessel will be used primarily in assisting petroleum tankers at offshore mooring terminals and as a diving support vessel. The operator of the new workboat is a principal in Mid-Pacific Towing, Ltd., also of Honolulu, for whom Marco recently built the 75-foot twin-screw tug Naupaka.

The 64-foot workboat is a new Marco design, with a beam of 21 feet and a depth of 8 feet. She will be powered by a pair of GM 12V71 diesels with a combined horsepower of 800 driving 42-inch-diameter four-blade propellers. Interior arrangements will include a complete galley, dinette area, and accommodations for a crew of three.

Marco plans to deliver the vessel on the Fourth of July.
