Terral RiverService christens M/V Kim King

On June 10, 2013 Terral RiverService christened the M/V Kim King. It becomes the sixtieth vessel in Terral’s fleet and the eight built by NewSouth Marine in Greenville, Mississippi.

The boat is named after long-time employee Kim King, who joined the grain company in Lake Providence in 1980. Kim currently manages Terral marine barge logistics. She is well known and respected in the barge industry, and we are very pleased to be able to honor Kim in this way. The boat will operate at Terral’s Lake Providence harbor.

The Kim King is fitted with two Cat C18 electronic engines putting out 1,200 HP. It is equipped with two John Deere generators with twin disc gears. The vessel is 65×28 feet, designed to be extremely efficient and crew friendly. It will be Terral’s main harbor boat for the Lake Providence area.
