Davie.
Why? US tugs sure look different to the ones we see around the UK, but they aren't any more efficient ...quite the reverse in my experience. You can get a lot more for your 3m......or just buy a used genuine one. BY.

It might look like a tug but is it intended to be used as one? Looking at the length of the deckhouse, I wonder if it is simply intended for cruising?

Thought as much http://www.parkol.co.uk/new_builds.html

It's just a lookie-likie and not a tug as such.

Bryan,
I am right and the 3M is (according to Davie) a rumour. You are discharged with a caution.  :P
