Project Description

Vessels:  m/v Cindy L. Erickson, m/v Chris Reeves, m/v Jerry Jarrett, and m/v Charles Reid Perry
Owner: Marquette Transportation Company
Propulsion:  Triple-screw Z-Drives – 6,600 HP
Dimension: 160’ x 50’ x 11’-6”


The triple Z-Drive propulsion system allows for optimal speed, power and maneuverability. In addition, the Z-Drives operate at a lower engine load to boost fuel efficiency. Each of the towboat’s super structure is supported on a bed of springs for added crew comfort and a soft-core joiner system was installed in the accommodation spaces for added crew comfort and safety.
