Jensen Maritime Honored for Third Consecutive Year by WorkBoat with Two 2018 Significant Boat Awards


Jensen Maritime, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering subsidiary, has been honored for the third consecutive year by WorkBoat magazine with two Significant Boat Awards. WorkBoat only issues 10 Significant Boat Awards each year. The first was given for Jensen’s designs of expedition cruise boats National Geographic Quest and National Geographic Venture, owned by Lindblad Expeditions Holdings, Inc., of New York, N.Y. The second was for the company’s design of ship-assist and escort tug Rosemary McAllister, owned by McAllister Towing and Transportation Co.

For the two 100-person expedition cruise boats, Jensen provided detailed design and production engineering services. The company also used 3D modeling allowing Lindblad Expeditions the opportunity to confirm the 238-foot vessel’s layout, maintenance envelopes and operational access prior to construction. This meant that all the details of the structural, electrical, mechanical and HVAC systems of the vessel were combined into one comprehensive, full-size 3D computer model, resulting in a virtual vessel that could be inspected early in the design process for safety, maintainability and constructability. Now fully constructed, the duo is operating tours between Baja, Costa Rica and Panama during the winter months and Southeast Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Canada during the summer months. The U.S.-flag, coastal cruise ships were built at the Nichols Brothers Boat Builders (NBBB) shipyard, in Freeland, Wash.

The 100-foot by 40-foot escort tug is the 32nd ocean-going escort/rescue tugboat in the McAllister fleet, but is one of the first that is Tier IV, meaning it utilizes high-efficiency, catalytic after-treatment technology to reduce emissions. Powered by twin Z-drive propulsion units, the tug offers an approximate bollard pull of 90 short tons, making it suitable for offshore service, ship assist, tanker escort, maneuvering and docking. Rosemary McAllister has been Load Lined and Classed by the American Bureau of Shipping as +A1, Towing, Escort, +AMS, and FFV-1. The 12-knot, 6,770-horsepower tugboat was constructed by Eastern Shipbuilding Group, of Panama City, Fla.

“It’s been exciting to watch the Jensen team receive national recognition for innovative designs by WorkBoat for three years running,” said the company’s Bryan Nichols, director, business development. “We are proud to not only develop significant boats, such as our new Tier IV compliant series of tugboats, but also to lead the industry with full-service, in-house naval architecture and marine engineering services that help our customers achieve their goals. We thank WorkBoat for the awards and our clients for trusting us to deliver.”

WorkBoat has honored Jensen with Significant Boat awards for years. Last year’s awards were given for two different tugboat designs that yielded the Earl W. Redd, owned by Harley Marine Services Inc. of Seattle, and built by Diversified Marine Inc., in Portland, Ore.; and the Arkansas, Mardi Gras and South Carolina, owned by Crescent Towing and built by Steiner Shipyard, in Bayou La Batre, Ala. In 2016, WorkBoat awarded Jensen for the design of San Francisco Fireboat 3, owned by San Francisco Fire Department. Jensen was also awarded in 2013 for the design of Crowley’s 750 class articulated tug-barge (ATB) fleet and the Bob Franco tugboat, owned by Harley Marine; in 2012 for the design of Crowley’s ocean class tugboats; in 2009 for the design of Crowley’s Nachik and Sesok tugboats; and in 2008 for the design of the HandyOne class boat, owned by Great Lakes Towing, and for the design of barge TAGGATZ, owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
