Leevac Shipyards Jennings launched the Ram Nation on Tuesday, March 18. The “splash” went as designed and the vessel was safely moored not long after. The 270' Leevac-designed PSV is the first vessel of Aries Marine's new series of 4,000 DWT PSVs.

The Ram Nation is a diesel-electric, DPS-2, FI FI 1 Platform Supply Vessel that will be certified for worldwide operations. It is the first of four LDS-designed vessels currently under construction, said Chris Vaccari, owner and CEO of Leevac.

“Aries Marine could not be happier with the degree of craftsmanship, attention to detail and timeliness of this project," said Court Ramsey, president and CEO of Aries Marine. "The Leevac team has worked diligently to produce a very fine vessel. We look forward to commissioning the Ram Nation later this year and placing her on charter with a valued customer."

The Ram Nation is scheduled to be delivered during the third quarter of this year.
