Este tipo de buques están especializados en la prestación de servicios (supply) a la flota atunera (tanto para la detección de bancos de peces como para aprovisionamientos, traslados, etc) y en este caso concreto daría apoyo al Cape Coral, de cerca de 80 metros de eslora, cuya construcción corrió a cargo de Armón Gijón.
