M/V American Mariner

M/V American Mariner



The M/V American Mariner is named in honor of all American seafarers.


The M/V American Mariner was built by Bay Shipbuilding Corp at Sturgeon Bay, WI and entered service in April 1980.


The M/V American Mariner is powered by two 3500 HP General Motors Electro Motive Division (EMD) diesel engines. The vessel uses a conveyor system below its cargo holds to transport cargo to an inclined conveyor system that elevates the cargo to the deck-mounted boom conveyor. For maneuvering in port, the vessel is equipped with 1,000 HP bow and stern thrusters.


The M/V American Mariner is used in general trades, transporting iron ore pellets, coal, limestone and grain. This vessel is currently bareboat chartered to a third-party freight carrier.
