When cargo vessels come into harbour having covered thousands of sea miles, theystill have a difficult stretch ahead of them. This is where the harbour tug boatcome into their own, take over command and tow these gigantic ships safely alongside the quay. The tug boats do not carry any cargo, but serve to tow large tankers and cargo vessels. These small, robust but very manoeuverable boats have very powerful engines developing from 250 to thousands of horsepower. The bridge is designed as a high superstructure to give them a good panoramic view, that will enable them to do their job properly and guarantee a safe passage through the confined space of the harbour. The bow, stern and side walls are usually reinforced and equipped with additional protective matting.
