We Bring the Right Vessels …

Crowley has one of the largest U.S.-flag fleets of tugboats, barges and other specialized marine assets found anywhere. These Jones Act – compliant vessels range from high-endurance tugs with dynamic positioning capabilities to high-deck-strength heavy-lift deck barges up to 400 feet long by 130 feet wide.

And our heavy-lift foreign-flag deck barges are ideal for jobs around the world. If we don’t have the right assets in the right place at the right time, we leverage our network of contacts around the world to source the ideal vessel solution to meet your offshore services needs.
