These new vessels for Harvey Gulf will follow-on the heels of a third 260-ft by 60-ftx 19.5-ft DP2 Offshore Support Vessel, the HARVEY CARRIER currently being built by Eastern and scheduled for delivery in June. The previous two sister vessels were the very successful Harvey Spirit and the Harvey Supplier.
