If you are involved in the tug boat industry in any way, whether by profession or peripherally, You have heard of or seen the striped stacks of McAllister Towing & Transportation’s vessels.
Founded by Captain James McAllister in 1864, McAllister has served the maritime industry with a variety of services uninterrupted until this day.

This in in addition to a fleet that currently boasts 70 vessels with roughly a dozen others also being tractor tugs.
So, on the occasion of their 150th birthday, let’s all raise a glass to McAllister towing, and wish them the same continued luck and success that has allowed them to be an industry leader for the last 150 years!
