Training Ship State of Maine / former USNS Tanner (T-AGS-40)

The USNS Tanner (T-AGS-40), was built for the United States Navy as a fast Oceanographic Research Vessel in 1990.

The ship lay idle in the James River Reserve Fleet until 1996 when she began a conversion process. The sister ship, Maury (T-AGS-39), is now the third vessel of the name TS Golden Bear.

She was delivered to Maine Maritime Academy on 6 June 1997.

Today Maine Maritime students in majors leading to a USCG Third Assistant Engineer (Marine Engineering Operations, Marine Engineering Technology, and Marine Systems Engineering majors) or USCG Third Mate (Marine Transportation Operations major) licenses participate in training cruises aboard the TS State of Maine.
