Inland Transportation Tugs

Tugs designed for pushing or towing barges in river or any inland service are highly unique and typically are required to operate at shallow or very shallow draft. Configurations for push-towing dominate this type of vessel.

The RApide series of tugs reflect almost 50 years of extensive design experience with this highly specialized vessel type. See Inland Transportation Systems for details of these unique pusher tugs.
