BEN3D b.v. Naval and Oonincx have presented a new small Tug
This robust 6 meters single propeller Tugboat, designed and built in the Netherlands, can be transported with the easiness of a standard 20 ft container – throughout the world. This provides optimal flexibility for operators.
The 1200 kg bollard pull, its large deck space and high-maneuverability make the Container Tug an all-round tow-tug and support vessel.
This boat is not tied to just one deployment area. Its container size dimensions and integrated corner fittings make it transportable in an identical way as for a normal 20 ft container: by road, by train or by ship. For transportation, the aluminum top part of the wheelhouse can simply be removed and can easily be stored on the aft deck.
Propulsion – Standard is a Volvo Penta common rail D5 engine connected to a 28 inch (711 mm) fixed pitch propeller. The large rudder area provides maneuverability under all conditions. Also, the vessel can be delivered with a Bureau Veritas class notation.
