YON is a non-self-propelled liquid cargo barge with nominal dimensions of 165 foot by 40 foot and designed to carry liquid petroleum products for refueling ships. This class is designed as an all purpose liquid cargo carrier capable of handling a clean product fuel (AVCAS, Jet fuel, Diesel oil or Navy special fuel oil). Thus the design incorporates treating coils needed to raise the viscosity of NSFO to an acceptable level for pumping as well as a chemical treated cargo tank designed to insure minimum contamination of fuel from foreign particles. The eight cargo tanks (four port and four starboard) have a total capacity of 8400 barrels.
A new series of double hull YONs are being built starting with YON 318 in 1994.
This craft is built to Specifications for Building Fuel Oil Barge YON-245 Class (258-262 series) (Non Self-propelled) dated 4 Feb 1964.

PRINCIPAL MACHINERY and EQUIPMENT
One liquid cargo pump, diesel driven
Craft is built on a longitudinal system of framing with frames spaced two feet on centers. Structure contains five oil tight transverse bulkheads and one centerline oil tight bulkhead which provide the boundaries for the eight cargo tanks. Each rake end contains two additional transverse watertight bulkheads. The centerline structure in rake ends contains lightening holes.
Plating sizes follow: main deck - 15.3#; side - 15.3#; bottom - 15.3#; oil tight transverse bulkhead - 10.2#; watertight transverse bulkhead - 8.92#; oil tight centerline bulkhead - 10.2#; deckhouse is 7.63#. Four longitudinal truss sections are built into each rake end compartment to strengthen barge for open sea towing for purposes of reassignment.
A deckhouse for housing a diesel driven cargo pump is built on aft end of craft.
