MICHAEL S Guides Ships from the Gulf to Baton Rouge

Built in 2009, the MICHALE S was the 3rd ASD (Azimuthing Stern Drive) built for Bisso Towboat Co.,Inc., of New Orleans (with her latest addition, the William S, also by Castleman Maritime, her fleet of ASD tugs is now four). With a pair of Caterpillar 3516B diesels driving her Ulstein Aquamaster US205 MK2 Z-drives, she has the power and maneuverability to help ships clawing their way up the

Mississippi to Baton Rouge to easily navigate the twists and currents of the river.

Bisso went back to Castleman for the WILLIAM S — speaking realms about the quality and utility of the CM design and engineering. To read “Professional Mariner’s” article about the younger sister to MICHAEL S, “Aboard ASD Tug William S, Bisso Crew are Feeling Pretty Cool,” CLICK HERE.
