Capilano Maritime Design Ltd. has recently completed the design of an 80‐foot Columbia Class ASD Ship‐Docking Tug for Shaver Transportation Company of Portland, Oregon. The tug is currently being built by Diversified Marine Inc., also of Portland, and will be the most powerful in Shaver’s fleet when delivered in 2011. The Columbia Class is a new series of tug designs by Capilano Maritime Design Ltd.
