Single screw tug

This is an excellent tug for harbour and coastal towing. The wheelhouse height is extremely important for vision when doing close quarter barge manoeuvring. Ship handling is normally obtained by where the shoulder position of the tug is in relation to the barge. Allows excellent all round and particularly shoulder vision for the master. New factory rebuilt main engine plus a new 50hp bow thruster which gives ease of operation.

Available for charter ex Auckland, New Zealand
