Harley Marine Services has added the newest component to their comprehensive training program by purchasing the Azimuthing Stern Drive (ASD) Training Vessel, BRAtt, from Robert Allen Ltd. The BRAtt is representative of a modern ASD tug and was purposefully built as a training tool for the maritime industry. Its compact design is scaled to proportionately represent a full size tug with dimensions of just 25.6 feet by 11.8 feet and a horsepower of 450.

The HMS BRAtt, stationed in Seattle, joins the diverse and growing Harley Marine fleet of 120 vessels. The HMS BRAtt will be used extensively in the tractor tug training program for crewmembers. Director of Marine Operations for Harley Marine Services, Captain Scott Manley, stated, “This vessel will greatly enhance our ability to train qualified and quality operators for our fleet.” The addition of the HMS BRAtt will allow crewmembers to become familiar with maneuverability and handling capabilities of a tractor tug prior to taking con of a full sized vessel. Her compact size will give trainees the opportunity to practice their operational skills in confined spaces

“One key component to a successful transportation company in the maritime industry is to employ the most qualified and competent individuals” reports Captain Scott Manley. In order to achieve this goal, Harley Marine is constantly evolving their training program so that employees are provided with the best available resources to do their job. The HMS BRAtt is just one element of the comprehensive training program at Harley Marine Services. The HMS BRAtt will provide a real-life training mechanism that will teach lessons experienced in the wheelhouse on a daily basis. Harley Marine Services is the only marine transportation company that has this type of learning vehicle available to their employees.
