Rigdon Receives Rigdon Yellowfin

Thursday, April 12, 2007
Larry Rigdon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rigdon Marine, announced that Rigdon Marine Corporation has officially entered the Crewboat and Fast Supply Vessel market with the delivery yesterday of the RIGDON YELLOWFIN.

The RIGDON YELLOWFIN was delivered by C&G Boatworks of Mobile, Alabama. Mrs. Margot Jackson christened the RIGDON YELLOWFIN before it was immediately deployed under long term contract to a major oil company in the Gulf of Mexico.

“The christening of our first Crewboat marks the beginning of another very exciting chapter in the history of Rigdon Marine Corporation,” said Larry Rigdon. “Today, we are even better positioned to meet the needs of our clients through a wider range of modern, technologically advanced vessels. Furthermore, we greatly appreciate the effort and commitment to quality demonstrated by C&G Boat works in Mobile, Alabama for delivering another fine vessel.”

The RIGDON YELLOWFIN is 155 feet by 29 feet by 14 feet and is powered by four (4) x Cummins KTA 50 M3 engines, capable of 1,800 hp each. The vessel features a huge cargo capacity above and below deck, capable of carrying 50,000 gallons of water, 35,000 gallons of fuel, and over 220 Long Tons of deck cargo on a 100’ x 25’ free back deck. “It should be noted,” says Larry Rigdon, “the RIGDON YELLOWFIN is amazingly the smallest of the nine crewboats that we currently have under construction for the US market.”
