YFNX - Special Purpose Barge

YFNX is a non-self-propelled, shore dependent special purpose barge constructed or modified from a YC or YFN type hull for use in performing a service of a specialized nature. Such services exist at Shipyards, laboratories, etc., and usually result in a modification tailored to the specific needs of the activity. As a result, it is uncommon to find two such craft similarly configured.

Characteristics of the hull from which these craft are modified (YC and YFN types) may be found in the specific section of the manual dealing with these types.

Existing YFNX types have in the past been modified to perform services as follows:

  • Sonar research
  • Deperming ships
  • Stowage for submarine
  • Decontamination service
  • In as much as each craft is custom designed to fulfill a different service, descriptive data for this type craft will not be presented in this issue.
