Our powerful tug boat Handfast has returned to the busy maritime port of St Helier where it is once again providing support services for the ongoing operations of this famous busy Channel Island port.
Handfast is a twin-screw tugboat, certificated under the MCA Workboat Code of Practice for operation up to 60 nautical miles from a safe haven for general operations. It is strong and reliable and has been providing essential port pushing and pulling services and general maintenance works around Jersey’s busy harbours.
Handfast returned to Jersey this summer and has put its impressive 2.4m draft, powerful 1050hp twin engines and 15t bollard pull, to good use in the waters around the Islands. The powerful tug is also equipped with an Effer 100 2S Deck Crane and 20Te Deck Winch with 280m x 36mm Wire Rope which has been in demand.
Built by the Meyer Shipyard, the vessel boasts a unique design being the heaviest build Damen Stan style Tug constructed for its time. Strong and reliable Handfast is available for towage, ploughing and harbour support services throughout northern Europe.
