Donjon Marine Salvages, Redelivers Royal Miss Belmar

August 26, 2011

On July 25th, Donjon Marine Co., Inc. was awarded a contract to salvage and return to owners the 100-foot passenger ferry Royal Miss Belmar, which grounded on approach to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, on July 4th.  Donjon mobilized its 400-ton capacity derrick barge Columbia, NY to the site with its 3000-HP tug Mary Alice to lift the vessel from its grounded position.  The recovered vessel was then loaded onto the deck of the Columbia, NY, lashed for seaworthiness, and successfully delivered to Savannah, Georgia, where the vessel was trans-loaded to a local shipyard facility for repair.  Donjon successfully redelivered the vessel as planned on August 24th. “This job is another example of Donjon’s varied capability and willingness to do whatever is necessary to successfully support the needs of an owner and his/her underwriters,” said John A. Witte, Jr., Executive Vice President, Donjon Marine Co., Inc.
