On April 20, 2014 C&B Marine took delivery of our newest addition to the C&B fleet of vessels, the MV Enterprise. She was built by Marine Builders of Uttica, IN. Our new 2,600 horsepower towing vessel is 90’ x 34’ x 10’. Upon completion the boat went straight to work in the Cincinnati harbor area. As with all new vessels our crews are excited about working her into our fleeting & shifting program here at C&B. Since she is now the largest horsepower vessel in our fleet, we know this addition will add to C&B’s already effective fleeting, shifting and towing operations for our customer service base in and around the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky maritime region.
The MV Enterprise propulsion is provided by two (2) Cummins QSK38 Tier II engines. These engines will drive two (2) Reintjes WAF 665 reverse reduction gears and two (2) 4-blade specifically designed propellers for the vessel driveline. The steering is controlled by means of an electronic over hydraulic full follow up steering control system.
President Rob Carlisle says “With the addition of these new vessels, we want our current and future customers to know that we are committed to be a full service provider. From our fleeting, cleaning and washing facilities at MP 480 and MP 459 Ohio River to dedicated charter towing, C&B has , Whatever it takes! Try us and see how a new level has been set for service”.
C&B is also in process of another new addition to our fleet later this month. The MV Discovery!
