MOANA PA'AKAI, INC. dba HAWAIIAN TUG & BARGE
Hawaiian Tug & Barge has been providing harbor support services that our founders, Young Brothers, pioneered more than a century ago. We offer ship assist at all major ports in Hawaii, a 24/7 dispatcher as well as contract towing and construction support.
With our involved, dedicated and skilled people and full fleet of tugs, and barges, we offer fast, reliable, quality service to all ports in the State of Hawaii and into the Pacific. Hawaiian Tug & Barge was formed as a sister company to separate harbor operations and charter activities from Young Brothers' inter-island freight operations.
In 1999, SaltChuk Resources, Inc. of Seattle, Washington, acquired Young Brothers and selected assets of Hawaiian Tug & Barge from Hawaiian Electric Industries. Together, Young Brothers and Hawaiian Tug & Barge operate a fleet of various barges and tugs.
The equipment list includes:
- PI'ILANI: 5,080-horsepower Z-Drive tractor tug with a 60 ton Bollard Pull
