Today, the Patriot sea-trial on San Diego Bay was a successful first run of Pacific Tugboat Services’ newest Tier 3 vessel. She will now undergo completion of crew amenities and systems, final painting, outfitting and USCG Inspection prior to commissioning in the PTS Fleet.
Patriot is a twin screw (through nozzles/flanking rudders) 1,400H.P. push tug with anchor handling capabilities, crew quarters, custom 360 degree view wheelhouse and CARB Tier 3 compliance.
