She is owned and operated by Holyhead Towing which was founded in the early 1960's as a subsidiary to the Holyhead Boatyard. Holyhead Towing started with one small coastal tug and has since developed into an operator of larger coastal and deep sea tugs. Since the late 1980's the company has focused on shallow draught multipurpose tugs and workboats in support of the dredging and marine civil engineering industries.
As well as using proven vessel designs, Holyhead Towing has successfully
developed and built its own vessels. As a result, the company now works on large and varied projects in a wide range of locations.
The company is also involved in a number of joint ventures with other companies working throughout the Mediterranean, Caspian Sea and Falkland Islands.
