The Travels of Tug 44

Tug Penn No. 2

Built in 1971, Tug Penn No. 2 is 120 feet long and 32 feet wide and has 3,000 horsepower. Her raised 2nd pilothouse indicates she is used mostly for towing tall fuel barges.

Tug Penn No. 2 turns away and heads for the security zone at the Bayonne Bridge. This tugboat is owned & operated by Penn Maritime.
