T-1 Tankers

Most recent update: June 27, 2008.


The T-1 tankers were small product carriers, designed to carry gasoline.  Almost all of them went either to the U.S. Navy, as AOGs, or to Britain, for service in a similar role.  Many of those under construction at the end of the war were sold immediately: a few can still be seen in the Far East, working in local distribution trades and as bunkering tankers.

Seven shipyards built 113 T-1s, led by East Coast Shipyards, in Bayonne NJ, which built 30, Cargill, in Savage MN, which built 18, Todd Houston (14), Barnes-Duluth (12), Todd Galveston (12), St. John's River (12), Jones Panama City (6), Todd Tacoma (5) and Lancaster Iron Works (4).
