Delaware Bay Shipbuilding of Leesburg, New Jersey, has laid the keel for a new aluminium salvage vessel ordered by an unnamed customer.

The 45- by 15.5-foot (13.7- by 4.7-metre) vessel will be powered by two Cummins QSM11 670hp (499kW) diesel engines driving ZF gearboxes.

Design work on the vessel was provided by LeMole Naval Architecture and Specmar.
