PETALESHARO was one of the NATICK - class large harbor tugs and the first ship in the Navy to bear the name. Originally assigned to Naval Station Mayport, Florida, the tug completed a major overhaul at the Trident Refit Facility in Kings Bay, Georgia, in 1997. The overhaul included replacing the tug's navigational system, updating the shore power system, and creating a new Material Maintenance Management system and Preventive Maintenance System deck. All the tug's tanks and engines were overhauled and an accommodation ladder was added. Following the overhaul, the PETALESHARO was transported to La Maddalena, Italy, in support of the Navy's forward deployed submarine tender there. The tug was forward deployed to La Maddalena, Italy., until stricken from the Navy list on July 20, 2007. On January 10, 2008, the tug was transfered to the Hellenic Navy.
