‘McAllister Towing & Transportation is one of the oldest and largest marine towing and transportation companies in the United States. In Rhode Island, our Providence Steamboat Company has been in operation since 1881. We also operate a fleet of more than 70 tugboats and barges in 17 locations along the U.S. East Coast from Portland, Maine to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
In 2014, McAllister built two new tugboats at the Senesco Marine shipyard in Quonset, one of which now works on Buzzards Bay. In each port, McAllister is engaged in ship docking, servicing more than 1,000 steamship companies with general harbor towing, coastal towing, and bulk transportation. Through our many years of experience providing these services and being on the water, we understand the need for ocean planning because we have witnessed our ocean spaces getting busier. We view coordination and planning for existing and future ocean uses as a useful tool to reduce conflict while enhancing the ocean economy.’
