Turbot (SS-427)—a Balao-class submarine—was laid down on 13 November 1943 at Philadelphia, Pa., by the Cramp Shipbuilding Co., but the contract for her construction was cancelled on 12 August 1945. Her partially completed hulk was later launched and, in 1950, was assigned to the Naval Ship Research and Development Center, Annapolis, Md.
