YR 94

- formerly IX 526, formerly YRST 1, formerly YDT 11, formerly YFNB 12, formerly YFN 723 -

YR 94 is one of the Navy's floating workshops. Built as a steel-hulled covered lighter, the barge was delivered to the Navy as YFN 723 on February 13, 1945. Later reclassified as large covered lighter YFNB 12, diving tender YDT 11 (1966) and salvage craft tender YRST 1 (1967), the barge was used in Vietnamese waters during the Vietnam War. Towed to Pearl Harbor, Hi., in mid-1971, YRST 1 was again redesignated IX 526 in the 1970s and finally became YR 94 in the late 1970s.
