Marine Log’s TTB – Tugs, Towboats & Barges — conference and expo, which next year is being held March 24 and 25, at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Hotel, Mobile, Ala., will offer a full program of activities that will include a behind-the-scenes tour of Metal Shark’s shipyard in Bayou La Batre, Ala., on March 23 for a limited number of guests.

Metal Shark is a leading designer and builder of custom vessels for commercial, defense and law enforcement applications worldwide. In 2018, the company acquired the assets of Horizon Shipbuilding, adding a 35-acre steel shipbuilding facility to its growing portfolio. Visitors to Metal Shark Alabama will see tugs and towboats under construction for multiple operators, including 120-foot inland towboats being built for Florida Marine Transporters.

In addition to new construction, numerous simultaneous refit and repair jobs are typically underway at this highly active full-service shipyard.

To RSVP or for more information, please contact Michelle Zolkos at ([email protected]) or call (212) 620–7208.

Space for this exclusive tour is limited and will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis.

TTB 2020 will feature expanded coverage and bring together owners, operators, builders and designers of tugs, towboats and barges across the full spectrum of the industry. Attendees will discover new ways to meet economical and environmental targets through advances in technology, innovative approaches to operating a fleet, the latest trends in tug and towboat design, and so much more.
