Offshore Support Vessels of the U.S.

Lady Grace Jeff L. Yates

Offshore support vessels stay busy carrying crews and supplys to oil platforms and other offshore facilities. This includes crewboats, supply boats, and utility Vessels. These workboats are usually in a big hurry....try and stay out of their way!! Avoid inside bends in places they are known to congregate. This section will list most of these vessels used in the U.S., as of the 2006 reporting year.

Our photo database contains pictures of some of these vessels, and Dick's Towboat Gallery contains many more. Both we and he would welcome your photos.
