Built in 1998, by Moss Point Marine of Escatawpa, Mississippi (hull #147) as the Scott Turecamo for Turecamo Maritime of New York, New York.
In 1998, Turecamo Maritime was acquired by the Moran Towing Corporation of New York, New York where the tug retained her name.
In 2005, she was fitted with a new 50(ft) tower and pilothouse. The Scott Turecamo was the third application of the INTERcon "C" coupler system in the United States and the second application for Moran Towing.
This involved extensive internal hull modifications, as well as finite element analysis for the modified structure to fit the notch on her new barge.
The tug is powered by two 12-cylinder EMD-645-F7B diesel main engines for a rated 5,100 horsepower.
She is married to the 425(ft) 118,000 bbl double hulled barge New Hampshire that was built in 2004 by Bay Ship of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
