How Dann Ocean Manages Mega Yacht Towing

Yacht Towing Services from Dann Ocean Towing

Mega yachts are enormous vessels that have entertained business tycoons, celebrities, politicians, and many other people for decades. Go onboard and you’ll feel like you’re in the lap of luxury. Like all other vessels, of course, there can arise a situation where a mega yacht needs help with being moved from one location to another.

Moving around a mega yacht is no easy task, which is why you always need to go with a reputable towage company when the need arises. Dann Ocean Towing has been doing this type of work for many years and is a leader in the industry.

Here are just some of the ways that our team will manage your mega yacht towing needs:

Full Analysis of Project Needs

Like any towing project that Dann Ocean Towing takes on, we’ll fully analyze your mega yacht towing requirements before we jump into action. Our team will work closely with you to get all the details that will be needed so we can successfully complete the job. Over the years, we’ve learned what questions to ask and will always be ready prior to beginning the project.

Mega Yacht Towing Experience

Dann Ocean Towing has more than a century of waterborne experience and we’ve handled a wide assortment of towage and assistance jobs. Although we’re often known for our barge towing services, we’ve also towed plenty of yachts and mega yachts. This is why we’ve become the most trusted marine towage company on the East Coast and beyond.

Well-Trained, Hand-Selected Crew

Like all other companies, a towage company is only as good as its crew. Our crew has been hand-selected based on their experience, dedication, and overall expertise in the towage industry and boating knowledge, in general. We put each crew member through extensive training and periodically conduct re-training sessions to make sure everyone is always at their best.

Aware of Unique Towing Needs

To an outsider, towing may seem to be the same no matter what needs to be moved, but workers in the industry know better. Our crew understands that mega yachts — like all other vessels — have unique towing requirements and specifics. Dann Ocean Towing is well-versed in these particular needs, which makes us very adept at conducting these types of projects successfully.

Quick Emergency Response

Although we sometimes get a lot of lead time before towing a mega yacht, it’s very common for these vessels to be moved due to an emergency situation. This typically involves some type of mechanical malfunction that can’t be fixed without moving the mega yacht close to a shore. If your mega yacht becomes stranded or otherwise requires towing, our team will react in a timely fashion.

Follow Strict Safety Guidelines

Every job we take on can be extremely dangerous because of the size of the vessels involved. This is especially true of mega yachts, which are often some of the largest vessels that we’re tasked to move. Dann Ocean Towing takes safety guidelines very seriously and will follow every single one of them from beginning to end to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Sizable Fleet for Mega Yachts

Since mega yachts are so large, it’s always important to have a sizable fleet available for towing. At the time of this writing, we have a total of 17 tugboats in our fleet, with varying degrees of horsepower and towage capability. This means that no matter what type of mega yacht or other type of vessel you need to have towed, we’ll have the vessel required for the job. We can also dispatch more than one vessel if the job calls for it.

Advanced Towing Technology 

The towage industry has certainly changed a lot over the past century and Dann Ocean Towing has been around to witness a lot of it. In addition to mechanical advances in towing equipment, there’s been a ton of technological advances that assist the mechanical aspects. Our vessels are equipped with state-of-the-art towing technology to ensure successful towing and accurate navigation.

24-Hour Assistance and Updating

Even when you know that a towage company has a great reputation like ours does, it’s important you can always get in touch with us for questions. We offer 24-hour assistance in case you have any type of emergency or would like to have an update of an ongoing tow. No matter the time of day or night, you can call us and we’ll give you all the information you need.
