Eighth Coastal Buoy Tender Launched

Thursday, September 02, 1999
Marinette Marine Corporation has launched the eighth USCG Coastal Buoy Tender, Anthony Petit (WLM-558). The 175 ft. vessel was designed and built at Marinette Marine Corporation. The ship is one of the most technologically advanced buoy tenders in the world and features a Z-drive propulsion system designed to provide unparalleled maneuverability. Anthony Petit was primarily designed to serve as a vessel to install and maintain navigational aids. Along with protecting the marine environment, the buoy tender is also equipped to respond to search and rescue operations. The advanced electronic navigation and positioning system featured within the vessel provide the USCG with outstanding control. For example, this ship is capable of maintaining its exact position while battling extreme current and wind. Anthony Petit's namesake was keeper of the Scotch Cap Lighthouse, located on Unimak Island, Alaska. This Keeper Class Coastal Buoy Tender will be operated by a crew of 18 and Ketchikan, Alaska will be its homeport.
