The Towing Division of Weeks Marine, Inc. offers a fleet of tugboats ranging from 660 to 4000 horsepower to meet our customer’s needs in both domestic and international trade. We specialize in multiple barge and difficult/delicate towing assignments, anchor handling, ocean, coastwise, harbor towing, along with tending and towing for the marine construction, dredging, and salvage industries.
Our Towing Division’s philosophy and goal is to provide our customers with the safest, most cost effective and reliable marine towing service possible. We achieve results by employing high quality licensed and documented captains and crew members that are seasoned professionals, with many of them having over ten years experience aboard our vessels. The Towing Division employs a full time dedicated shore-side staff which is available twenty four hours a day with extensive knowledge of our equipment, experience in all aspects of towing operations, and uniquely capable of providing the mechanical, technical, and operational support necessary to meet your project requirements.
All of our vessels are maintained to the highest standards in accordance with United States Coast Guard, American Bureau of Shipping, Federal Communication Commission, and United States Environmental Protection Agency rules and regulations. We are a member in good standing of the American Waterways Operators (AWO) and operate our towing vessels in accordance with the Responsible Carrier Program (RCP). In addition we have recently re-powered and completely renovated four of our vessels between 1500 to 2000 horsepower with Tier II compliant main engines and generators along with modifications to make them “zero-discharge” vessels. This enables us to provide our customers with technologically advanced, reliable, efficient, and environmentally compliant vessels capable of meeting today’s more stringent regulations on air and water pollution.
