Measuring 170 feet by 50 feet with a pilothouse eyeline height of 39 feet, 3 inches, the vessel is the the first in a three boat series that C&C Marine and Repair is building for Hines Furlong.

Designed by CT Marine LLC of Portland, Maine, the vessel is powered by three Cummins QSK60-M main engines, provided by Cummins Mid-South, that are paired with three Reintjes WAF 1173 H/V reduction gears, provided by Karl Senner LLC. Service power is provided by three Cummins QSM11-DM, 275 kW generators, and the conventional steering system hydraulic power unit was supplied by EMI Marine.

The towboat has three 100-inch diameter stainless-steel fixed pitch propellers, provided by Sound Propeller Systems Inc., and features double steering rudders.

The accommodations include a total of 12 beds (11 crew, plus one guest) and, for additional crew comfort, the vessel is designed with a floating, spring mounted superstructure.
