WorkBoat has named its 10 Significant Boats of 2017.
This year’s list was dominated by tugs — five of them were selected. Other selections: two ferries, an articulated tug-barge, a survey vessel, and a multipurpose support vessel (MPSV).
Six of the vessels were built at Gulf of Mexico shipyards, three were built at West Coast yards, and one at a Great Lakes shipyard. The 10 boats will be recognized at an awards breakfast at the International WorkBoat Show on Thursday, Nov. 30. The breakfast will culminate with the selection of the 2017 Boat of the Year.
