Our Fleet

Vane Brothers operates more than 50 tugboats and 75 barges, as well as two 140,000 barrel articulated tug and barge units (AT/Bs) and two launches.

We are fully committed to a cleaner environment through prevention, preparedness and response. Vane tugs are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to safely transport petroleum products wherever our customers require us to go. The newest generation of Vane vessels (those built since 2014) feature EPA TIER 3 compliant engines that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And well before the 2015 deadline put forth by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90), our fleet of tank barges had already been completely converted to rugged double hulls for optimum safety.

As we continue to grow, we stand ready to provide our customers with the safe and reliable service they need to succeed and have come to expect.
