MARINE TOWAGE ASSETS
Rhumb Maritime invests in inshore towage assets including tugs and barges. In 2011 Rhumb Maritime contracted for two vessels and a further one in 2012. All three are now in service in Australia. Rhumb Maritime will continue to develop a high quality new-build fleet for inshore work.
The vessels are available to the market on a bare boat charter for short to long term. If required alternative charter arrangements can be made to suit charterers needs.
The present Australian inshore fleet profile is generally of older, lower specification vessels. The requirements of industry now demand more modern, reliable, safe equipment to properly support the very high-value infrastructure developments currently taking place around the Australasian coastline.
Rhumb Maritime is understanding of this trend and is investing accordingly.
