Hat tip to Jan van der Doe for sending along a set of tugboat photos from the Lekhaven area of Rotterdam harbor.  Rather than shotgun approach and posting a lot of photos, I just chose one tugboat for today’s post . . .   Brutus.  Click here to get all the specs for the boat.  Let me highlight some info.

She’s big and shallow:  117′ x 47′ x max draft of just over 9′, the first ever Damen Shoalbuster 3514 SD (Shallow Draft) with DP2 ever built, and launched less than two years ago.  Propulsion is provided by four Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines delivering 5,280 hp to four 6.2′ nozzles. 

Here’s another link.  For the rest of the Herman Sr. fleet, click here

Thx to Jan Oosterboer and Jan van der Doe for these photos.
