Built as the Mobil 2 by Southern Shipbuilding in 1973 for Mobil, rated at 3,000 hp. She was renamed the Tachee in the wake of the Exxon Valdez incident, when the oil companies sought to remove their name from vessels that could potentially have incidents. When she was renamed the Tachee, Mobil added an upper wheelhouse.

After Mobil became Sea River Maritime, the Tachee was renamed the S/R Albany, when Sea River was dissolved the S/R Albany was acquired by K-Sea Transportation Partners and renamed the Baltic Sea.
