Welcome to New York Fort Schuyler! Tug Fort Schuyler has been delivered to Vane Brothers, the 11th Sassafras Class tugboat built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Maryland.

Fort Schuyler sports engines with a combined 3,000 horsepower and joins her sister Kings Point to home port in Red Hook.

Marine Link: Fort Schuyler, like Kings Point, has joined Vane Brothers’ fleet based in New York. The names of both vessels pay homage to a pair of highly respected, mid-Atlantic maritime education facilities. The State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College has a Marine Transportation Department based at Fort Schuyler, while the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is located in Kings Point, New York.

I can’t wait to see you on the water!
