Although CT Marine has designed several hundred vessels of varying types since opening our doors in 1978, we have focused primarily on Towboats and shallow draft vessels for the last twenty years.

It is with this focus that we can assure our clients the most modern Towboat attainable in the World.  We are a full service International firm that continuously incorporates the latest internal & external technologies to further Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering.

“OT&BE combines its own experience with that of CT Marine, of Edgecomb, ME, a firm with which we have had long-time collaboration.

CT Marine is the world's most experienced firm in the field of large ocean barge design, model testing, and river and ocean barge hydrodynamics. CT Marine's experience dates back some 35 years and covers a huge range of testing and design efforts in both river and ocean barges and towboats.”
