SKEG FIRST - NOVEL TRACTOR TUG DESIGN

The article describes the identical sister tugs BESS AND BOSS built at Moen Slikp AS, Kolveried, Norway. The 57 ton bollard pull tugs have a free running speed in one direction of 15 knots and 13.5 knots in the other, a skeg at what looks like the bow and their Voith Schneider propulsion units on the 'wrong' side of the wheelhouse.
