Horizon Shipbuilding, Inc. of Bayou La Batre, Ala. said it signed of a contract with long-time customer Florida Marine Transporters to build one 80’ towboat, with two option vessels.

Horizon said that FMT has been a customer for nearly seven years, and FMT’s continued business is largely responsible for its success and ability to expand capacities and capabilities.

Jeff Brumfield, FMT’s New Construction Manager, created the design and has worked along with John Gilbert and Associates to bring the design to reality. The vessels have the following characteristics:

LOA 80’
Beam 33’
Depth 10’-6”
Draft 8’-6”
Propulsion Power 2100BHP
Crew 6
