PSA Marine of Singapore, one of the largest harbor tug owners and operators in Asia, took delivery of the RAmparts3200 class tugs Rubicon and Righteousfrom Cheoy Lee Shipyards, Hong Kong and Yuexin Ocean Engineering Co. Ltd., Guangzhou, PR China respectively.

The RAmparts Class tugs from the design portfolio of Robert Allan Ltd., Naval Architects of Vancouver B.C. are a series of well-proven ASD tug designs. Each of these designs has been developed from a successful prototype vessel or series of vessels and refined to emphasize ease of construction. Each new delivery is also custom-tailored to the needs of each individual client.

Robert Allan Ltd. worked closely with Cheoy Lee Shipyards and Yuexin Ocean Engineering Co. Ltd. in the design development of these two tugs which are specialized for ship-assist service and coastal towing. Although carrying the same RAmparts 3200 designation, Rubicon, a RAmparts 3200CL design, was uniquely designed for Cheoy Lee Shipyards to suit their production facilities and Client base. The most notable feature of this design is the shallower draft than the standard tug, a frequent requirement in Asia.  The Righteous is a RAmparts 3200W design with slightly different characteristics.
