News: EBDG-Designed M/V Henry Island Launched

Wednesday, July 23, 2003

Last April, San Juan Ferry & Barge selected Seattle-based Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) to complete the Contract Design for a new landing craft, the M/V Henry island. In order to deliver the vessel in time for the busy summer season, EBDG designed and lofted the landing craft simultaneously, allowing shipyard Latitude Marine Services of La Conner, Wash., to begin cutting steel in December 2002. The 81 ft. steel vessel measures 70-ft. long on deck, with a 25-ft. molded beam, and 7-ft. hull depth. The landing craft is equipped with a ramp forward designed for beach loading and can handle loads up to 90 tons. The vessel is U.S. Coast Guard-inspected to 46 CFR Subchapter I for hull construction and Subchapter T for most systems. The main engines are twin John Deere model 6081 each rated 235 bhp at 2,100 rpm complete with Twin Disc gear.

The team at Latitude Marine Services is very pleased about this project. According to shipyard Project Manager Patrick Gudmundson "This is a perfect project for our first new build. It shows what can be achieved here." In addition to new construction, Latitude Marine has a 100-ton haul out capacity for repair and conversions.
