Chesapeake Shipbuilding Corp. signed another contract with Vane Brothers of Baltimore to build three more ocean going tugs. This new contract marks the 15, 16 and 17th tugboats built for Vane Brothers by Chesapeake Shipbuilding since 2008. Construction on the first new tug has already begun in one of Chesapeake Shipbuilding’s hull fabrication buildings.

The design of these three new tugboats will be nearly identical to previous tugboats built for Vane Brothers. Each will be equipped with twin Caterpillar 3512 main engines producing a combined 3,000 hp, and a single drum hydraulic winch from JonRie of New Jersey. The tugs will measure 94 x 32 x 13 ft.
