Shortly after we finished fabricating the 83,800 BBL fuel barge Sixty Five Roses for Harley Marine, the barge owner returned to our Portland yard to have Vigor construct another vessel. The double-hulled, state-of-the-art Betsy Arntz is designed to transport 31,500 BBL of fuel.

Like many Harley Marine vessels, Betsy Arntz is named to honor a young person who struggled with a debilitating disease. Betsy lost her fight with juvenile diabetes; Sixty Five Roses was named in honor of a child who succumbed to cystic fibrosis. Betsy measures 241’ x 64’ 6” x 24’ 4” depth (73.5m x 19.7m x 7.4m).
