Vintage Fuel Texaco® Firefighting Tugboat Fully Assembled Die Cast Model, 1/55 Scale
Tugboats that are specifically equipped to handle fire emergencies arising on ships and in ports are also known as fireboats. The function of these extraordinary vessels is not restricted to extinguishing and solving potential fire/safety issues, but also include a number of other roles and responsibilities as well.
Tugboats that have been converted into fireboats have been around for years, and have undergone many changes to suit the needs and requirements of each terminal/dock or port.
The first known fireboat was designed and built in the 18th century in London England. Our Texaco tugboat was built in the 1940’s and now has been fitted out with fire-fighting equipment to help assist in emergency situations. The choice to refurbish a tugboat to be used as a fireboat, is an excellent fit because of the tugboats stability, agility and amazing strength. Tugboats have a proven unique capacity to perform their duties in extremely difficult nautical conditions. Texaco and tugboats… providing safe, secure transportation of Texaco products.
