Vessels

VesselsHorizon Lines maintains a fleet of 13 fully Jones Act qualified vessels that are used to serve the domestic trades between the continental US, Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico.  Our fleet has the fastest ships which constitute the most viable means of ocean transportation in the domestic market.  These ships allow us to maintain an on-time, reliable schedule despite the rough seas and complex shipping conditions we may encounter.

Our containerships, like all ships, go into drydock periodically – in most cases twice every five years – for required underwater surveys of the hull, hull components and propeller. The underwater portion of the hull is usually painted and all required repairs are completed. During this drydock period, the engines, turbines and boilers are shut down for survey, repair and modernization. Routine drydockings can significantly prolong the life and viability of a ship.
