Horizon to build towboat for Florida Marine Transporters

Bayou La Batre, Ala.-based Horizon Shipbuilding has signed a contract with long-time customer Florida Marine Transporters (FMT) to build one 80’x33’x10’6″ towboat, with the option of two additional vessels. 

Jeff Brumfield, FMT’s new construction manager, created the design, and worked with John Gilbert and Associates to bring the design to reality. The 2100 bhp vessels can accommodate a crew of six and have a 8’6″ draft.
