FAIRPLAY TOWAGE

Fairplay Towage was started in Hamburg in 1905 as a harbour towing company, and they have kept on doing that up until the present day. They added a deep sea capability in 1967.

In 1997 they added an offshore capability to their fleet, and it is due to this that they are features here. Broadly we have featured tugs of more than 30 metres length. These vessels are often seen offshore particularly assisting with the moving of jack-ups.

By the time of the 2014 update, the company had itself designated some of its tugs as 'Offshore/Oceangoing tugs' and so this is the new list here. It is different form the previous list, and the non presence of some tugs does not mean they have been disposed of.

At the 2015 review Fairplay still has many many tugs, and I have decided to make the minimum size for the vessels included here to be 40 metres, actually one on the list is 39 metres long, but what the hell. In any case these four tugs in addition to the Balitc are designated as the "Ocean Going Tugs" of the fleet. So there they are.
