Rouge I'm afraid I havenít heard of Dave Barrable, where is he located in Cornwall and what service does he offer, Alex is going to ask around at work reference the Tug rates so hopefully have a good idea there soon.

Thanks again all

Shaggy,
This fee generally covers a 24 hour period!! (Not usually at sea for the full duration unless it is with our US or MoD customers). It all depends on the job. For escort duties or windfarm transfers we will do a couple of runs in the morning, then stand down for a bit. Transfer out equipment over lunch and then do a personnell change over in the afternoon. Often they want the boat on standby for all other times at an agreed "Notice To Move" ie 1 hours notice to collect etc. This is where you juggle the price. ie If the daily rate is generally £1K but they only want a run in the morning and a run in the afternoon you can drop your price and negotiate.....maybe!
Hope this helps.

Hello Shaggy,

I assume you're thinking about tugs that come under the small commercial vessel code under 24metres are you?

Locally, having a rib for the day including crew is between £450 to £550 (this is just 8hr(ish) day though, and not a 24hr period day).

I assume these sort of charges vary around the country - for towage, I think we work on a per job basis as opposed to per day ie towing a barge out of dry dock is one job, and 5mins later towing something else into dry dock is another job. I forgot to ask today will remember tomorrow though - have sent an e-mail to myself at work.....

-Alex

Hi Alex
I like that system will have to use it myself

In terms of size of vessel a figure of 30m to 60m was mentioned, the device they want to tow to the mooring has a Displacement of 700 tonnes (including ballast) so not sure really how big it needs to be but that seems quite big to me.

Sorry Shaggy, I failed to read your initial post properly. If you're looking for 30metres plus on tug size, then you could give Svitzer (http://www.svitzer.co.uk/) a call. They have fairly hefty tugs, scattered around the uk including down this way - their newer tugs are superb craft.
For barges and workboats, your best bet would be to get hold of Williams Shipping... they have barges, workboats, small tugs etc... and would probably be able to help you out on all the stuff you asked about in your original post. Goto http://www.wmps.co.uk/ to see what they're about - wmps is Williams Marine and Port Services, their local base in Pembrokeshire. They have some good little Damen stantugs, as well as other various craft for different purposes.

I could ask our lot for a day rate on a tug, but the cost I'd get could be completely different to what they'd say when they know what the job is.... it may be easier to just ask the people directly for a cost I think.

-Alex
