It was the case with the Thyssen II from Graupner (but not a harbor tug hull)

sorry about the pics but im not use to doing this.still learning.this is a new type of tug & it has the two voith units at the stern.ii think it is still being tested as there  is little information about it.there is no table under the units because of the hull shape.the table on conventional voith tugs is for drydocking purposes only.

Hello

John your are the happy owner of my dream when I was young (20 years ago)  Yep I was dreaming for a Thyssen at that time !  Now thanks to Graupner Voith i've built a Voith tractor tug then I've built my own Voith units !

Vincent, the Baut don'y have the Voith at stern as you suggest on your hull, in fact there are not a new and there is some tugs like that since more than a decade in Norway, Sweden (Bob, Bess, belos, Baut ...) and even in US with the Crowley Response Class

The name of this kind on Voith tractor tug is stern first or sked first tractor tug. Excepted the quite flat forward the underwater arrangement is very similar to any Voith with the propeller under the hull on the 1/3 forward and a sked on afterside.   

Picture, info and GA of the Response

I thought tractor tugs had the voiths mounted a third of the way aft from the bow of the boat?  Might be wrong?

Russ

1/3 from the bow being the usual pivot point of a stern prop driven hull, guess that also applies to Voith units, so down to hull rather than propulsion maybe??

All those models look very affective I especially like the Barge, Have you ever put some rubbish in there for more effect?
