St. Johns custom built a pair of twin-screw push tugs, the Lady Shayne and Lady Dashelle, for Smithbridge. The two tugs were assigned to a high profile marine construction project in Sydney’s Botany Bay, site of a new bulk liquid terminal. With these versatile tugs, Smithbridge can adapt various types of utility equipment to the front of the vessels for different project requirements.
“Of course, I can’t say enough about Bobby (the General Manager), he is the barge guy. The barge is extremely useful and well-built. Delivery was on time and hassle-free. The whole experience was pleasant from the front desk to the end product.”
- Mike Smith, Principal, Sun Towing, L.L.C.
