Tugboats… for all Reasons

The rugged tugboat, in its many guises, is the mainstay of our design work.

The history of Robert Allan Ltd. is closely linked with the development of high-performance tugboats of all types, for coastal and ocean towing or for ship-handling and escort. Today our designs are widely accepted as the performance benchmark for ship-assist, tanker escort, river transportation and offshore support service. To navigate the many hundreds of tug designs available to serve the unique needs of our many clients, we have created “the right tug” to help the reader choose the best tug for each application. Select below either the particular application you have in mind, or choose by propulsion configuration. If you are familiar with our series names then you can also choose directly.
