Tomorrow’s tugs. Today.
A global leader in the tug market
Damen Shipyards has become a household name in the global tug market. Today, our tugs are operating in ports and terminals around the world.
We can offer optimal solutions for any kind of towing operation. From our renowned ASD, RSD and Stan Tugs, to Carrousel Rave Tugs and Rotor Tugs, Damen has a tug for you.
Vessels for the next generation
Our tugs are built on a solid foundation; generations of shipbuilding heritage. We’re not looking backwards though. Our vessels combine proven technology with innovation to deliver safety, sustainability, efficiency and reliability.
Building at a yard of your choice
Damen can assist customers in building our tugs locally. This flexible option results in a valuable transfer of technology and enables owners to enjoy Damen quality combined with the convenience of local production. Damen can deliver packages ranging from simple licensing to full turnkey solutions.
Damen is a customer focused and open-minded shipyard in that we can build other tug designs, not just those from our own portfolio. We have a unique cooperation with Robert Allan and RotorTug and have teamed up with Novatug and Multraship to build the Carrousel Rave Tugs. Always a customised design with Damen quality!
