Embark on a thrilling journey as we explore the giants of the sea – the world's largest and most powerful tugboats. In this eye-opening video, we dive into the fascinating world of maritime transportation, highlighting the critical role of tugboats in ensuring the safety and efficiency of ship movements across the globe. A tugboat or tug is a marine vessel that manoeuvres other vessels by pushing or pulling them, with direct contact or a tow line. These boats typically tug ships in circumstances where they cannot or should not move under their own power, such as in crowded harbors or narrow canals,[1] or cannot move at all, such as barges, disabled ships, log rafts, or oil platforms. Some are ocean-going, and some are icebreakers or salvage tugs. Early models were powered by steam engines, which were later superseded by diesel engines. Many have deluge gun water jets, which help in firefighting, especially in harbours.
