NOVEMBER 17, 2016—Master Marine , Bayou La Batre, AL, recently laid the keel for the first of four 67 ft x 28 ft fleet boats. All four fleet boats will be working in the Cairo, IL, fleeting area for Waterfront Services and CGB Enterprises.

Propulsion for each towboat will be provided by two S6R2-Y3MPTAW Mitsubishi EPA Tier 3-compliant marine diesel engines, rated at 803 hp at 1,400 rev/min, coupled to Twin Disc 5321 gears. The boats will be set up with 10,400 gallons of fuel, 4,359 gal of potable water and 9,500 gal of ballast water along with providing a maximum 7 ft 9 in working draft. 

Master Marine says that it is “very happy to be teaming up with both companies providing them the latest towboats and equipment available for these vessels while meeting Subchapter M requirements.” 

The first fleet boat will be delivered and in service the summer of 2017, with additional vessels to follow every three months.
