Donjon adds tug to fleet
Hillside, NJ, based Donjon Marine, Co., Inc., has added the 2,700 hp twin screw tug Sarah Ann (ex-June K) to its expanding tug fleet. The 78 ft x 26 ft x 10.5-foot tug, with twin CAT 3512B diesels and a 9-foot draft, was built in 2003 by A&B Shipyard, Amelia, La.
Designed principally for ship handling and assist work, barge towing and dredge assist, the tugÕs draft is shallow enough to navigate the many creeks and estuaries throughout the Port of New York region. The tugÕs upper pilothouse, whose maximum eye-height is 28 feet, can be folded aft to a 19-foot eye-height as required to accommodate any height restrictions.
The Sarah Ann will support DonjonÕs existing and future projects as one of the largest dredging and salvage contractors in the Northeast, as well as broadening the towing services Donjon provides to its customers throughout the New York/New Jersey area.
