“Tugs in Colour – British Built”.


B O O K R E V I E W by : Frank NEYTS

Coastal Shipping Publications recently published “Tugs in Colour – British Built” , written by Andrew Wiltshire. ‘Tugs in Colour – British Built’ is intended as a sequel to Andrew Wiltshire’s first book on tugs ‘Looking Back at British Tugs (2007). This time he concentrates on examples that were completed in British shipyards. He has always been fascinated by the number of small shipyards that once existed around the UK, and often by the location of these yards. Many of them specialized in building tugs large and small for the home market as well as for customers overseas, and not just in the British colonies. Such was the quality of British-built tugs, that some went on to give many years of service. In 2016 a surprising number that have exceeded their 50th birthday can be found hard at work at locations around the world. This book covers tugs built at 46 different UK shipyard. Andrew Wiltshire is a prolific author and respected writer of transport books and photographic albums. “Tugs in Colour – British Built” (ISBN 978-1-902953-80-9) is a hardback book, small size, of 80 pages, lavishly illustrated. The price is £17.00 plus £1.75 European postage. Ordering via the bookshop, or directly via the publisher, Coastal Shipping, 400 Nore Road, Portishead, Bristol BS20 8EZ, UK.
