Glosten Unveils New Ship Assist Tug

By: Megan Ponce | Marine Design, Naval Architecture, Press

We are pleased to introduce the Glosten SA-80, a thoughtfully designed 70-ton ASD tug for inner harbor service.

This no-nonsense tug was carefully developed to enhance all aspects of ship assist and barge handling functions in busy port complexes.  A refreshing alternative to the increasingly common “do-it-all” tug, the SA-80 provides a smart and practical combination of design elements to make it highly versatile – without watering down its primary ship assist function.

With unique positioning of the stacks on the wheelhouse, this design offers unobstructed lines of sight in virtually all directions. The SA-80 also features a continuous main deck with high freeboard and full fendering on the stern, maximizing the amount of usable contact surface for ship work.  At 81′ overall, this handy sized tug is nimble, yet powerful, making it a good choice for confined waterways.
