Marcon International, Inc. of Coupeville, Washington says that Pacific Coast Maritime, Inc., Seattle, Washington, a subsidiary of Harley Marine Services, Seattle, has concluded the sale of its 240’ ABS ocean deck barge “HML 240-2” (ex-Aqua 242, MK-242, Foss 242) to Island Tug & Barge Co. also of Seattle.

Marcon International explain that the 240’ x 60’x 16’ flat deck barge was originally built by Todd Shipyards Corp. of Houston, Texas for Foss Maritime in 1967, and acquired by Pacific Coast Maritime, Inc. in 2000 as the “Aqua 242”. After purchasing the barge, the former owner put her through an extensive rebuild and upgrade for long term service in Alaska supporting their container shuttle / feeder operations out of Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. That service lasted until Fall 2013, when the barge was replaced on that service with the new U.S. Fab LLC, 2013 built, 250’ x 70’ x 15.7’ depth, ABS ocean deck barge “Iliuliuk Bay”.

The “HML 240-2” barge, now named “ITB 242”, has an ABS International Load Line with a deadweight rating of 4,000T on a 12.0’ loaded draft. The barge was previously fitted with a crawler crane midships, for handling containers, and has a 6” concrete wear deck.

She will now work for her new owner in the Pacific Northwest in that company’s continuing fleet operations and Marcon adds that it acted as sole broker in the sale of this barge.
