A salvage tug is a specialized type of tugboat which is used to rescue ships which are in distress or in danger of sinking, or to salvage ships which have already.

A new class of ultra-compact tugboat is turning heads and filling important industry niches. Recent developments have produced not only a very cost-effective tug for training, but an ultra-compact workboat which can operate in small ports and perform specialized functions such as ship-handling, line-handling, yarding, boom deployment, etc. The BRAtt has all the functionality of a full sized tug a€“ from a fully operational ship-handling winch to modern fully azimuthing Z-drives.


While the original BRAtt is of all-welded aluminum construction and has been classified as a BRAtt 780-AE, a recently built pair for Suncor Energy are constructed with a steel hull and aluminum house. The BRAtt 880-SU has an all-welded steel hull with an all-welded aluminum alloy wheelhouse. The BRAtt class has all the functionality of a full-size tug in a compact package, making it an ideal training tug or ultra-compact line-handler, utility or yarding tug for confined harbours or shallow water operations.
Originally conceived as a training vessel, the BRAtt has developed into a class of small but tough workboats. BRAtt designs are now available in a range of sizes, from 7 metres to 10 metres, in both aluminum and steel construction. This gives the operator the opportunity to train personnel in a realistic environment with all of the associated real world variables. From its first a€?splasha€? at ITS 2010 to today, the ongoing development of the BRAtt continues to excite and attract new owners!


Risks and costs are reduced significantly during training as no additional crew are required, and running costs are much less. Similarly, the BRAtt can perform everyday small tug duties in a fully functional manner, and it is this capability which has surprisingly attracted the most attention to this exciting a€?MicroTuga€? since its introduction.
