USNS Trenton

New London, CT  2015

One of the many attractions featured at this year's Maritime Heritage Festival in New London was the USNS Trenton, which is part of the Military Sea Lift Command.  This naval vessel was delivered to the Navy this past April and is one of 11 joint high-speed vessels that have either been built or are currently under construction.  The much smaller ship seen here is the USCGC Ida Lewis, a Coast Guard buoy tender.  I'll be sharing some more pictures and some facts about the Trenton in future posts.  It is a very impressive ship.


  1. I'm looking forward to your future posts about the USNS Trenton. The Navy seems to be coming up with a number of innovative ships.
