Gulf Island to build two additional Navajo-class ships for US Navy

Gulf Island Fabrication has received an award for the construction of two additional towing, salvage, and rescue ships for the US Navy.

This represents the navy’s execution of its second and third options for Gulf Island’s construction of three Navajo-class vessels that will be built at the company’s shipyard in Houma, Louisiana. The navy has remaining options for five additional vessels.

The vessels will be used for open ocean towing duties as well as salvage and submarine rescue operations.
