Following the purchase of International Tug & OSV, we have merged this together with the Tug Technology & Business, creating the mostly widely read magazine covering the global tug, towage and salvage sectors.

International Tug & Salvage meets the 21st century information needs of commercial, operational and technical management within tug and salvage operators worldwide and keeps those responsible for tug services in ports and terminals updated with the latest international developments. The magazine offers an independent perspective on innovations and emerging solutions and takes a uniquely in-depth look at the needs of the end users of tug services.


It provides an overview of the entire industry, covering the activities of the towage and salvage operators, the vessels themselves, the designs of these, the yards that build them and the specialised equipment used.
