“Every vessel we build has its own challenges and opportunities, and the eWolf is no different in that regard. As the builders of the first all-electric tugboat in the United States, we have developed a comprehensive team and integrated plan for the unique design, engineering, procurement and construction of this vessel. Our skilled workforce has constructed hundreds of vessels over the past four decades, many of which are first-in-type for maritime operators across the country, and we look forward to completing this exciting project for Crowley by mid-2023.” — Garrett Rice, President of Master Boat Builders
