Arctic Directory: Crowley takes delivery of ‘Sunshine State’ tanker

Crowley Maritime Corp. said Dec. 4, that it has taken delivery of Sunshine State, a 331,000-barrel, double-hull oil and chemical tanker, from General Dynamics NASSCO in San Diego, Calif., for American Petroleum Tankers LLC. The Sunshine State is the first vessel Crowley has taken delivery of since the company was contracted by APT to handle shipyard construction management and overall vessel management, crewing and operation of the company’s growing fleet. The Sunshine State measures 600 feet by 106 feet by 39 feet and has the capacity to carry 331,000 barrels of product. It has a single-screw, slow-speed diesel plant propulsion system with speeds of 15 knots. Two other sister vessels, the Empire State and the Evergreen State, which will both be charted to the Military Sealift Command, are scheduled to be delivered to Crowley in 2010.
