Marcon International in Coupeville, Washington has announced the sale of a 180ft supply boat to West Coast buyers.

Twenty Grand Marine Service LLC of New Orleans, Louisiana sold the US flag supply vessel Toby Tide to Ocean Marine Services Inc of Kirkland, Washington.

The ABS +A1 (E) +AMS classed, 180ft x 40ft x 14ft supply vessel was built in 1980 by Halter Marine in New Orleans. She is powered by a pair of CAT D399TA diesel engines producing a total of 2,250hp, turning props through Reintjes WAV 1400 gears. This generates a max speed of 12 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots.

This is the 20th vessel to date which Marcon has sold from sellers, with eight going to West coast operators. Over the years, Marcon has concluded sales of four OSVs and one 40,000bbl ocean tank barge to the buyers.

Upon Toby Tide's arrival from Port Hueneme to Seattle, she was promptly drydocked in preparation to start working in Alaska. The vessel is being renamed Sovereign, after the first 3,900 bhp, 185ft AHTS which Marcon sold to these owners from Offshore
Logistics Inc 22 years ago.
