Posted by Michelle Howard

SUNY Maritime College has appointed Captain Morgan McManus as the Master of the T/S Empire State VI. An alumnus of SUNY Maritime College, Captain McManus graduated in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in Marine Transportation.

Captain McManus has over 12 years' experience sailing as Master including on the SS Cape Jacob, the sister ship to T/S Empire State VI. His sailing career has taken him on various types of commercial ships including steam, motor, breakbulk, container, car carriers, tankers, and cutting-edge dynamic positioned drill ships. He also served as Watch Officer onboard T/S Empire State VI during a summer training cruise.

Captain McManus' current shipping experience in the areas of navigation and safety and industry knowledge will be of great benefit to the students and College. Most importantly his current and wide range of experience will help to elevate the US Coast Guard licensing programs to new levels through rewarding applied learning experiences.

As the U.S. Maritime Administration commences construction of the first purpose built maritime academy training ship, which is due to replace T/S Empire State VI, Captain McManus' experience with new-build ship construction projects will be extremely beneficial.

Captain McManus' appointed as Master T/S Empire State VI will become effective April 4, 2019.
