Back in April of 2016, Antillean Marine added a Tugboat service to its operations in an effort to provide a better service to its customers. For decades Antillean depended on the schedule and availability of third-party towing companies to tug its vessels in and out of the river. Nowadays, Antillean enjoys the flexibility of schedule that have a private and exclusive towing service can offer, Initially, Antillean’s tugboat service (performed through a sister company, namely, Miami River Towing Company) had two Tugboats: Sara and Pepin. Today, Antillean and Miami River Towing Company are proud to announce the addition of yet another Tugboat to its service, the mighty Captain Babun.
Captain Babun is the most powerful Tugboat out of the fleet. It boasts a 1,450 HP engine, a length of 62 feet, a breath of 24 feet, and it is 86 GRT/69 NRT.
This powerful Tugboat will provide additional flexibility to Antillean, which will translate into a better and timelier service for its customers. This new addition is yet another example of Antillean’s commitment to its customers.
