Editor’s Update 2:00 PM: Received the following update from Kristin Ching at Naval Station Everett about the visit.

The USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) is a Zumwalt-class destroyer that is just here visiting. It’s a relatively new class of ship and was commissioned in January 2019.

The ship stopped in Everett for refueling and other stuff while they conduct training in the North Pacific up by Canada. They will be coming and going from the pier several times throughout the month and then are planning to leave the area end of October.

On Tuesday the USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) arrived at Naval Station Everett. It is the second of only three Zumwalt-class ships built by the U.S. Navy. The ships were said to be stealthy and technologically advanced but the program was cancelled after cost overruns. The Monsoor was christened in 2016 and commissioned in January 2019. It is assigned to its home port of Naval Base San Diego. The ship is 610 feet long and has a crew of up to 158. No word at this point why the ship is at Naval Station Everett. Here are a couple photos of the arrival late yesterday morning. Click photo to enlarge.

The Monsoor is considerably larger than the other destroyers based at Naval Station Everett.

No word how long the ship will be in Everett.
