About this creation
Hi there, thanks for checking my deep sea tug, operating heavy duty in international harbours, seas and oceans. This MOC was (merely) inspired by the 1975 Smit Rotterdam (see below), that operated for Smit International and since 2007 is operated by Svitzer Ocean Towage.

International towing is a very interesting and impressive business! This specific tug for instance (the Rotterdam) has 22.000 IHP! That's a lot of horses...

















This next picture shows the original Smit Rotterdam. I think the MOC worked out ok but the scale made it hard to catch the right proportions. So I think the MOC would be a bit smaller in real life than the real deal, catch my drift? ;-)



Thanks again and feel free to comment!

Excellent model of an ocean-going tug. Hull is spot-on, as are many of the details.

Quoting Mr. Inkognito Well done. The shape of the hull could be better but it's difficult on that shiup size I know. The rest and especially the details are great!
Thanks for your comment. It's my first ship, I'll give it another shot next time (though I orderd some parts especially for this hull).
