Description: The M/V Keith Tibbetts is not a Destroyer but a Brigadier Type II Class frigate. 14 of the frigates were built in Nakhodka at the Zelenodolsk Shipyard between 1975 and 1988. NATO's reporting name for this particular type of anti-submarine vessel is the Kona II. It was built in 1984 for approximately 30 million dollars (US), and before splitting into two sections in 1998 the ship was 330' and a 42' wide. Due to a loss of funding in Russia's overseas programs, the entire crew was repatriated to Russia in 1992, She sat abandon in Cuba until the Cayman Government purchased her for 200 thousand dollars (US). Now she is visited by divers nearly everyday to traverse her hallways and rooms.

Originally named Patrol Vessel 356, the Cayman Government renamed the vessel the Captain Keith Tibbetts in honor of a local Politician and businessman. Many of his achievement include; Merchant Marine in WWII, Justice of the Peace, ship builder, sea captain, over 20 years in politics (noted as one of the most famous and colorful Members of Legislative Assembly), and was the owner of a supermarket, petrol station and shipping agency.
