Anchor Handling Towing Supply Vessels (AHTS)


The most versatile vessels in the Tidewater fleet are large, powerful anchor handling towing supply vessels, capable of all types of towing, anchor handling activities, and varied subsea operations. Tidewater crews manning these ships are specially trained to run this equipment with precision and efficiency while maintaining a focus on safety at all times.


Fitted with experienced crews and state of the art technology, these AHTS’s are capable of positioning and mooring drilling rigs in virtually any location, depth or sea condition and under a wide range of conditions. With a wide range of power, sizes and capacities, these vessels are also well-suited for general offshore support services, drilling rig support functions and cargo transport assignments.



Platform Supply Vessels (PSV)


Few vessels can match the performance and versatility of Tidewater’s general purpose supply vessels. Designed to carry a wide variety of cargoes, our PSVs can transport substantial amounts of fuel, water, drilling fluids, cement or mud in below-deck tanks, while their spacious, open decks can carry large quantities of materiel such as casing, drill pipe, tubing and miscellaneous deck cargo.



Offshore Tugs


Tidewater operates a large fleet of offshore tugs, offering optimal flexibility and broad capabilities to address any offshore towing application, for any project, in any location. Our tugs perform conventional towing and anchor handling functions supporting a wide range of offshore tasks, including rig towage and marine construction. Tidewater tugs are also employed in coastal and ocean towage of both containerized and bulk cargoes.



Fast Crew Supply Vessels


Few companies can boast the wide range of crewboats Tidewater operates around the world. With the capacity to safely transport as many as 150 passengers and moderate quantities of cargo at high speed and  in comfort, Tidewater’s crewboat fleet has the versatility to meet a variety of production needs in the most demanding of conditions.
