How Much Does a Tug Boat Cost?

Across Damco Marine’s current inventory of tug boats for sale there are a variety of price points depending on the features, specifications, and condition of each vessel.

New Tug Boat Construction Prices

Without detailed specifications, most shipbuilders are reluctant to ballpark a quote on new construction so we’ve collected some pricing from a collection of websites and industry resources to get an idea how much it costs to buy a new tug boat. New tug boat prices start at over US$750,000 and can be as much as $10,000,000 or more depending on the specifications and equipment. A well maintained tug boat can retain much of it’s value over time and provide years of service.

How Much is a Used Tug Boat?

Our least expensive tug is priced to sell at $99,000. Our most expensive tugboat costs $1,800,000. The average price of a used tugboat in today’s market is right around $610,591. This figure is calculated by using a variety of online sources and the average of our own select inventory.
