MARCO Shipyard Seattle has signed a contract to construct a third Millennium Class tractor tug for Harley Marine Services. Measuring 105 ft.

Construction of the tug is ongoing, with delivery planned for March 2002. Similar to its predecessors, the MARCO-designed tug will have an overall beam of 37 ft. (11.2 m) and a molded depth of 17 ft. (5 m). It will be powered by a pair of Caterpillar 3516B diesels, providing a total of 4,400 bhp that will drive Ulstein Z-drive units, each fitted with 94.5-in. four-bladed props set in nozzles. Deck machinery will feature headline and tow winches from Burrard Iron Works of British Columbia.
