USS UTAH Keel Laying Ceremony

Saturday, September 4, 2021

General Dynamics Electric Boat marked the keel laying of SSN 801 Utah, the 28th ship of the Virginia class. Utah will be the second U.S. Navy vessel named after the “Beehive State,” the first being a Florida-class battleship (BB-31) commissioned in 1911. BB-31 met her fate during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 where she was moored as an anti-aircraft gunnery training ship. “Today the hull of Utah remains at Pearl Harbor as a memorial to the 58 officers and crew who lost their lives that day. May the spirit of those brave souls guide the future crew of the second USS Utah, whose keel-laying today celebrates the ceremonial birth of the ship,” said EB President Kevin Graney during his remarks.
