Maersk Nascopie in St. John's Harbour

The Maersk Nascopie is an offshore supply vessel based out of St.John's harbour, Canada. The Nascopie was built in 1996 by Marystown Shipyard.



The Nascopie is named for the SS Nascopie, a vessel partially owned by the Hudson's Bay Company which sailed through the south-eastern Canadian arctic in the early 20th century.


The Nascopie provides support to the Hibernia oil field, including supply and iceberg control operations. The vessel operates alongside it's sister ship, the Maersk Norseman.


The Nascopie is an Ulstein UT-745 design, primarily a PSV (though fitted with a towing winch). As such, the Nascopie has oil and rescue/recovery capability. The Nascopie is also fitted with a dynamic positioning system and offship fire-fighting capacity. The Nascopie is ice-classed. DP capability is provided by twin 600kW stern thrusters, a rectractible azimuthing thurster forward (900kW), and a bow tunnel thruster (900kW), providing a DP-2 capability.
