Skua is a small general purpose workboat/tug. Skua's size, deck arrangement and low air draft make her an ideal vessel for use as a safety standby boat around harbours, jetties, bridges, etc. Skua's power and manoeuvrability also make her very useful as a tug/pusher suitable for assisting with barge moves and mooring operations, and she is especially useful in situations where space and clearance are restricted.
