Ingram Marine Group, Nashville, Tenn., is expecting delivery of three new vessels in 2022. These, along with the first two vessels delivered in 2021, make up half of the company’s 10-vessel order with Main Iron Works.
The first two, the mv. Adrienne M. Moore and the mv. Tom Cornwell, are Ingram’s first new builds in close to 40 years.
The third boat in the series, the mv. Debbie L. Owen, is on schedule to deliver in late March. The fourth boat, the mv. Captain Roy Daniels, and the fifth boat in the series are both scheduled to deliver later this year.
The vessels are four-decked, welded-steel, Coast Guard Subchapter M-compliant towboats that were designed by Ingram Marine Group, Main Iron Works and Ashraf Degedy, PE. The 78- by 32-foot boats are outfitted with twin Caterpillar C32 Tier 3 diesel engines rated 1,600 hp. total, and Reintjes gearboxes, John Deere generators and 76-inch Michigan special propellers. The live-aboard vessels feature a 34-foot eye level and have capacities of 18,000 gallons of fuel and 8,000 gallons of potable water.
