"Tug" in context

A tug is a powerful type of boat used for pushing or towing other vessels in the open seas, including boats, barges, and tankers. Tugs are generally characterized by their robust design, shallow draught, heavy-duty engines, and large propellers. They are also equipped with specialized equipment to aid in the pushing and towing of vessels.

Tugs use their powerful engines to move vessels in and out of docks, harbors, and other areas. This makes them perfect for towing vessels such as disabled ships and barges that are unable to make their own way.
