Anna Cam

  • Eastern Marine, Inc. of Panama City, Fla., recently delivered the Anna C., a specially designed and constructed passenger/vehicle ferry, to Nelseco Navigation Company, Inc. of New London, Conn. The vessel's primary function is to provide ferry service from New London to Block Island, R.T.

    The all-steel, 197-foot by 39-foot by 14-foot ferry, designed by John W. Gilbert Associates, Inc. of Boston, features a triple-screw propulsion plant with three Cummins KTA 3067M diesel engines rated at 1,250 shp each at 1,800 rpm, coupled to Twin Disc MG 540 gears on a 4.5:1 ratio. The fixed-pitch propellers were supplied by Columbian Bronze, while the steering is provided by a Wagner model LD2-7.0- 45-EB2 steering system. In addition, the seakeeping and maneuverability of the vessel are greatly enhanced by the addition of a specially designed bulbous bow, the installation of a Harbormaster BT-200 bowthruster driven by a Detroit Diesel 6-71 engine and the installation of high-performance steering rudders manufactured by Willi Becker Engineering, Inc. These rudders incorporate a unique flap at the trailing edge which dramatically increases performance.

    Steering stations equipped with both steering and propulsion controls are located on each bridge wing as well as on the aft end of the top deck to provide maximum visibility while maneuvering the vessel. The passengers will ride in comfortable surroundings designed and decorated by Dampa, USA, with concession stands located on each enclosed passenger deck. Further, the entire top deck is available for the passengers unobstructed viewing pleasure.

    The vessel was constructed to U.S. Coast Guard Subchapter T regulations, Vessels Under 100 Gross Tons, and is capable of carrying 1,300 passengers and 42 vehicles at one time. During sea trials, the vessel achieved a speed of 19 knots.

    The basic design for the Anna C.

    was derived from the 187-foot ferry Carol Jean, which was also built by Eastern Marine and delivered in 1985. Since that time, the Carol Jean has enjoyed a very successful career operating between Point Judith, R.I., and Block Island. The Anna C. will provide an extension of this service.

    Eastern Marine is engaged in the design and construction of passenger/ vehicle ferries, fishing vessels, inland and offshore tugs, barges, cruise ships, specialized military and governmental agencies ships, offshore support vessels, and repair and conversion operations.
