The new tug Yong Gang Tuo 29 has recently been delivered to her owners, the Ningbo Port Group of China. This is the 7th Robert Allan Ltd. design in Ningbo's fleet and the first of the RAmparts 3300 class worldwide. The design is an evolution of the RAmparts 3200 class vessels already in Ningbo's fleet, and is a result of a recognized need to increase power and bollard pull to meet the expanding requirements of the larger ships visiting the port. Hence this new RAmparts 3300 design is one metre longer than the earlier tugs designed for this Client, in order to accommodate the upgraded propulsion system.
The vessel was built by Zhenjiang Shipyard Co. Ltd. of China, specifically for the ship-handling operations in the Ningbo Port area and is classed by the China Classification Society.
Configured as a twin Z-Drive ship-docking tug, main propulsion is by a pair of Niigata 8L28HX diesel engines, each rated 2,206 kW at 750 rpm, and each driving a Niigata ZP-41 Z-drive unit.
Particulars of Yong Gang Tuo 29 are as follows:
Length, o.a. 33m
Beam, Molded 11.6m 
Depth, Molded 5.36m
Maximum Draft, o.a. 5.4m
