Design 377 - 110' Ocean Going Tug

This profile sketch is about as refined as this design was to get, back in 1940. The design was developed for the Dalzell Towing Company, a New York City based tug operator founded in 1851. The boat was not built.

I particularly like the engine selected for the design: an Alco-Sulzer 2-cycle diesel generating 1,800 hp. This engine was 28' long and weighed an astounding 128,000 lbs.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 110'-0"
LWL 98'-0"
Beam 26'-0"
Draft 14'-0"
Displacement 310 tons
