Built at LEEVAC shipyard in Jennings, Louisiana, the TWILIGHT was completed in April 1987. The main deck has a length of 126 feet and breadth of 30 feet. Her full load draft is 5′ 6″.
The propulsion is twin screws, diesel-electric drive. The main propulsion engines are Cummins KTA-19, 510 horse power each, driving 450 KW generators. The propeller shafts are driven by a General Electric traction motor. The propellers are Columbian bronze, 5 blade, 48″ diameter. The fuel capacity is 3000 gallons in 2 integral tanks.
The TWILIGHT is exceptionally fast for a vessel of her type and handles quite well. Using the 65 horse power bow thruster and the twin screw configuration, this vessel can easily pivot 360 degrees in its own length. She has even been known to pull the occasional water skier.
