California-based shipbuilder General Dynamics NASSCO has delivered the 50,000 dwt Liberty, the third and final ECO Class tanker ordered by SEA-Vista LLC.

The LNG-conversion-ready product carrier, which has a 330,000 barrel cargo capacity, is part of an eight-ship Eco class tanker program being built for SEA-Vista, a partnership between SEACOR Holdings Inc. and Avista Capital Partners.

The construction deal was signed between the parties in 2013 when NASSCO entered into an agreement with SEA-Vista to design and build three 610-foot-long tankers.

Construction for the first of the three ships began in November 2014. The first two ships, the Independence and the Constitution, have been delivered and are servicing the Jones Act trade.

Liberty is the seventh vessel in the eight-ship Eco class tanker program for two separate customers, SEA-Vista and American Petroleum Tankers.

Palmetto State, the eighth ship of the program, is scheduled to be christened and launched on March 25, 2017, at the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego.
