Eastern Shipbuilding delivers the CAPT. JIM McALLISTER with a USCG Sub-M COI to McAllister Towing
Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. announced the delivery of the Escort Z-Drive Tug CAPT. JIM McALLISTER for McAllister Towing on August 16, 2019. Jensen Maritime Consultants of Seattle, WA designed the 100’ x 40’ vessel to full ABS Class Maltese Cross
standards. The vessel has been issued its USCG Sub-M Certificate of Inspection (COI).
This is Eastern’s second construction of a new USCG Sub-M qualified tugboat, with a Certificate of Inspection under the new regulatory regime issued at delivery. The US Coast Guard Station Panama City conducted all inspections in Panama City, Florida. The American Bureau of Shipping served as the Third-Party Organization certifying the vessel’s Towing Safety Management System.
McAllister Towing’s new construction delivery team worked closely with Eastern’s delivery supervisors during the Subchapter M COI inspection. The Capt. Jim McAllister’s vessel crew participated with the sea trials and performed the required vessel safety drills.
