Real Ship-Assist Tugs
The use of ship-assist tugs and thrusters to swing and berth in confined areas is highly realistic. Repeated exercises enable the ship handler to refine handling techniques.
The changing position of the pivot point is graphically demonstrated. Berthing in high wind conditions gives experience in control of ships during extremes of weather. An experienced on board pilot facilitator is able to offer advice or coach as necessary.
Exercises can be structured to specific client needs, with emergency exercises with tug assist also conducted as part of general ship handling training.
