Crosby is among the most experienced tugboat operators in the world. Crosby Tugs, LLC was founded in 1977 by Vinton and Kurt Crosby when it acquired the first vessel the Paddy Crosby. Since then, it has grown into one of the largest privately owned marine transportation businesses in the marine industry. The company continues to grow with acquisitions and new builds.

At Crosby, service means 24-hour dispatch; expertise in the wheelhouse; a friendly, helpful voice on the other end of the radio or cell phone, and a fleet of nimble, powerful tugs at the ready. We can help save you time and money by tailoring procedures to streamline vessel scheduling, monitoring and accounting.

We provide knowledgeable, skilled personnel and advanced tugs to:
  • Safely assist ships into and out of their berths whether they be small freighters, container ships, aircraft carriers, Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), or any type of vessel in between.
  • Escort oil tankers quickly and safely through shipping channels and environmentally sensitive waters.
  • Tow ships and other types of vessels.
  • Fight vessel fires.
  • Respond to fuel spill spills.
  • Work effectively in extreme climates and sea conditions.
