Horizon Delivers Azimuthing Tug

Tuesday, February 13, 2001
Horizon Shipbuilding, Inc. recently delivered Belle Watling, a 72-ft. Z-drive tug to Dixie Towing of Jacksonville, Fla. The tug was delivered 30 days ahead of its contractual delivery date. Belle Watling is the first azimuthing tug to be built by the Bayou La Batre shipyard. Glowacki Engineering of Jacksonville provided the contract design for Dixie Towing. Detail design was completed by Horizon’s design staff. The boat features a separate engine control room forward of the engine room. The Glowacki design provides for good deck stowage space and stowage below deck. The pilothouse is designed for 360-degree visibility and for working under a bow overhang when engaged in docking operations. The narrow pilothouse width is designed to enhance alongside and docking operations. Glowacki Engineering has prepared an 85-ft. Z-drive design exclusively for Horizon, which is similar in concept to Belle Watling. Horizon hopes to market its new 85-ft. 1,800-2,000 hp design at a very competitive price.
