Subsequent to December 31, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement to scrap the Seabulk Trader, which was built in 1981. The limitations on marketing over-age tankers did not justify the expense of a regulatory dry-docking, even though the vessel is in excellent condition for its age.
Property Plant And Equipment By Major Class [Text Block]
Property and Equipment. Equipment, stated at cost, is depreciated using the straight line method over the estimated useful life of the asset to an estimated salvage value. With respect to each class of asset, the estimated useful life is typically based upon a newly built asset being placed into service and represents the point at which it is typically not justifiable for the Company to continue to operate the asset in the same or similar manner. From time to time, the Company may acquire older assets that have already exceeded the Company’s useful life policy, in which case the Company depreciates such assets based on its best estimate of remaining useful life, typically the next survey or certification date.
As of December 31, 2017, the estimated useful life (in years) of each of the Company’s major classes of new equipment was as follows:
Petroleum and chemical carriers - U.S.-flag
25
Harbor and offshore tugs
25
Ocean liquid tank barges
