The Response Class tug is a state-of-the-art escort tug. The hull design is based on the lines of the Boxer owned by Bukser og Berging of Oslo, Norway. The vessel is capable of providing in excess of 320,000 pounds of steering or braking force and can safely escort vessels at speeds over 12 knots. The key elements of the design are the hull and skeg lines, the Voith/Caterpillar propulsion package and the Markey hawser winch. Together, these make for a more easily controlled vessel, capable of applying and maintaining high forces to control a disabled vessel. The Response Class tug is a Class 1 firefighting vessel, capable of throwing over 13,000 gallons of water per minute a distance of 400 feet.
