Marine News

The Company:

McAllister Towing & Transportation operates a fleet of more than 75 tugboats, crew boats and barges in 17 locations along the U.S. East Coast from Portland, ME to San Juan, PR. The fleet consists of 28 Z-Drive/ Tractor tugs, 11 Tier II compliant tugs, 20 plus vessels involved in coastal towing and 35 ABS load line classed vessels.  In each port, McAllister is engaged in ship docking, general harbor towing, coastal towing and bulk transportation. The firm has recently welcomed 3 new Z-Drive/ Tractor tugs as it continues to upgrade its already formidable fleet. McAllister also owns and operates the Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Company that runs three passenger-car ferries, each capable of carrying 1,000 passengers and 100 automobiles, between Bridgeport CT, and Port Jefferson NY.
The Case:
McAllister Towing is one of the oldest and largest family-owned marine towing and transportation companies in the nation. Founded in 1864, the company has served the maritime community continuously, earning a reputation for excellence. Today, the company operates a balanced and extensive fleet of tugs, barges, and ferries in the major ports on the U.S. East Coast and in Puerto Rico. Captain Brian A. McAllister is the President and a great-grandson of the founder, representing the fourth generation of McAllisters at the helm. Five McAllisters of the fifth generation are also employed by the company. The Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s 2015 annual salute to the ‘Maritime Person of the Year’ most fittingly highlighted the McAllister family; specifically Brian McAllister, Buckley McAllister and Eric McAllister.
