Intermarine Launches Fifth Osprey Class Minehunter For U.S. Navy

In early June, Intermarine USA launched the U.S. Navy Coastal Minehunter Falcon (MHC 59) into Georgia's Savannah River. Lillian Budd Darden, wife of The Honorable George Darden, who previously represented Georgia's 7th Congressional district, sponsored the vessel in its christening ceremony. Falcon is the fifth Navy ship of the Osprey class to be launched by Intermarine. The vessel is 188 ft. (51.1 m) long, displaces 890 metric tons, and is one of the world's largest ships to be constructed of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP). Minehunters are designed to clear littoral, harbor, coastal and ocean waters of acoustic, magnetic, pressure and contact type mines. Intermarine also delivered the USS Oriole, the third of the eight contracted Osprey class ships, in mid- May.

Intermarine USA is a U.S. shipyard registered as a partnership in N.Y. with Intermarine SpA of Sarzana, Italy. The Savannah yard offers shipowners and operators a complete range of ship repair services. For more information on Intermarine Circle 160 on Reader Service Card
