USSC’s fleet of six vessels – one parcel tanker, one product tanker and four articulated tug barges – will add to Seabulk’s 15 vessels.
“Combining these two fleets and operating teams will provide our respective customers with enhanced flexibility, best-in-class equipment, and excellent service well into the future,” said Dan Thorogood, CEO of Seabulk, part of the Seacor family of companies.
The transaction closed on August 13. Terms were not disclosed.
