TowBoatU.S. #8 was added to our fast response fleet in 2015. Prior to its acquisition, the vessel was owned and operated by the Chicago Police department. After the vessel was purchased and transported to South Florida, she underwent a complete refit including repowering and many other unique customizations to suit our needs before she was launched into service. The vessel is equipped with a full complement of salvage equipment and is primarily used to respond to salvage and emergency towing situations.
