The newbuild is named Captain Walter after former tug captain Walter O’Connor, whose career with Crescent Marine spanned more than 30 years. Design work was provided by Entech.

The 60- by 26-foot (18.2- by 7.92-metre) Captain Walter is powered by two Caterpillar C18 EPA Tier III-compliant engines driving Twin Disc gearboxes.
