Know that Tug Boats come in various shapes and sizes that help them perform in specific areas or with a particular purpose. However, all tugs essentially perform the same conceptual task. That task is to be the tow trucks of the marine world. Tugs push and/or pull other marine vessels or structures across oceans, rivers, and seas. This can include boats that would otherwise navigate themselves but cannot due to a limitation. This could be as emergent as a breakdown, or something more specific such as a narrow area the boat being towed does not possess the ability to navigate on its own. Tug boats are often also used to move Marine based structures that normally cannot move on their own at all such as barge platforms or oil rigs.  To that end here are some ofl types of towing a tug, or type of tug can do:

  1. Emergency - For towing broken down sea vessels
  2. Harbour - Sheltered water towing, moving a boat into or out of a berth.
  3. Canal Transit  - for moving a vessel through a narrow canal
  4. Escort - Precaution for navigating difficult waters where damage might otherwise occur.
