Dive into the fascinating world of offshore support vessels as we take you on a journey exploring the mightiest tugboats ever made! From pulling massive tankers to navigating through ice in the Arctic, these maritime marvels are the unsung heroes of the sea. Get ready to marvel at the power and versatility of the world's largest tug supply vessels, boasting remarkable design, unparalleled power, and immense operational capabilities. Such maritime technological prowess can only be applauded and broadly praised. Countries building beautiful, powerful tug boats of this kind should have crossed the line of metal industry's skilfulness, proficiency and potentially, nice content. I love the fact that I don't know much of anything about ship design, because I'm certain that if I did I wouldn't have the same sense of wonder when I see the myriad strange shapes that different ships require, for the tasks they perform. These ships don't look stable to me! Beautiful to see! A few notes on origins: At 0:02 the vessel Alp Striker and at 5:33 the Alp Keeper are both designed by Ulstein Design & Solutions AS in Norway, thus not designed in the United States, as claimed in the video on the second. You can see from afar that this is a vessel designed in Norway, e.g. by its distinct X-Bow. At 1:01 the Esvagt Innovator, with all the huge Turkish flags, is another Norwegian originated ship, designed by Havyard Ship Design in Norway. And at 6:11, the Canadian AHTS-vessel (built as Ice class 1B, strengthened to class 1A) Horizon Arctic also has Norwegian origin, designed and built for Bourbon Offshore Norway AS by Vard Brattvaag, on the west coast of Norway. Sailed in Norwegian waters for seven years, and just recently (2023) relocated to Canada. At 9:19 the Olympic Energy is another Vard designed and built vessel, a Platform Supply Vessel (not a tugboat) of b.y. 2012 at Vard Aukra Norway, which origins wasn't mentioned. At 10:58 the Maersk Master is an AHTS-vessel designed by Salt Ship Design AS in Norway, and built by Kleven in Norway. And Skandi Iceman at 11:59 is yet another vessel by Vard in Norway (...and those 7 are just a few, as I just skipped quickly through this video). Demographics: if you study this in more detail, you will see that a surprisingly large share of these ships (including all 7 ships mentioned) are all designed, built and/or outfitted - not only in Norway - but more specifically by the population of less than 250.000 people of Møre, a small geographic region immediately north of the west cape of Norway. The shipbuilders are descendants of the most ocean-crossing people of the Viking age.
