Superport Marine Services Ltd. has been in the marine business since 1972 as an owner and operator of North Atlantic work boats including tugs, crew boats, supply boats, pilot boats, oceanographic research, and survey vessels.

The company builds various types of work boats including the recently launched near-coastal tug Strait Raven. This unique design is proprietary to SPM and incorporates optimal operational features based on the company’s forty-plus years of experience in marine support roles.

Dimensions of the twin screw vessel are LOA 65′, beam 20′ and operating draft of 6.5′. The steel hull features large twin skegs which not only protect cooling and propulsion gear, but also enables the vessel to stand free-stand out of the water, or be safely grounded in case of an emergency. The hull features a straight sheer strake which is also plumb vertically over 70% of the LOA. This provides a very large contact surface for handling barges, and maximizes barge control and tug efficiency.
