Navy Diver Support Boat
MSHIPCO was the principal designer for the new US Navy’s Diver Support Boat (DSB) fleet built by Marine Group Boatworks.
The 65-foot DSB is designed and built to meet the Navy’s strict Military Specifications for servicing aircraft carriers and submarines.
The main deck includes an enclosed cabin containing a diver’s equipment console, diver’s prep station, workbench, storage and Navy embarked electronic system. The open aft deck includes an articulating knuckle boom crane mounted centerline with a 26 ft reach.
Below deck, a dive equipment room will house all Navy Embarked Equipment, a shower with dressing area and a head. The galley includes seating for six people, microwave, refrigerator, sink, hard-piped industrial sized coffeemaker and stainless steel countertop.
