Updates to the MPSV GO America

Not all service providers are created equal, and this is particularly true in the marine industry. Marine operations require effort, carefully crafted logistics, and dedicated and professional personnel to be properly effected.

Just as it is important to take care of your crew, it is equally important to maintain all equipment to ensure the safety of all onboard and the successful execution of all vessel operations.

To better support our valued clients and unique operations, Guice Offshore, our strategic partner, has successfully completed repairs, maintenance, and systems upgrades to the Multi-Purpose Supply Vessel, GO America, aka GOA. In other words, the GOA got some love and she is now fully ready to service you!

The GOA is a 150′ class DP1 vessel with incredible operational capacity. This amazing vessel offers 20+ passenger accommodations, it carries 2x Cummins KTA 38MO of propulsion power, has 330 LT deck cargo and 14,982 usg of portable water capacity, and comes equipped with Dynamic Positioning Beier Integrated Systems, 2 radars, SAT communications, and many more useful extras.
