Commercial Tugs (> 50 ft.) Built in Canada Since WWII

Most recent update: September 19, 2017.


There are about 3,000 tugs in the Canadian Vessel Register but almost all of them are the very small vessels used in the lumber industry.  The cut-off value of 50 feet used in this table is a bit arbitrary - it's designed to allow the table to focus on the boats built in waterfront shipyards and boatyards rather than manufacturing facilities.  In addition, the older boats are almost impossible to track.  If anyone has any corrections or additions to the table, please send them to timcolton@aol.com
