The Minister of Finance, Economic Affairs and Culture mr. Xiomara Ruiz-Maduro and the Minister of Tourism, Public Health and Sport, Mr. Dangui Oduber had the honor to officially inaugurate the Colorado tugboat.
The acquisition of the tugboat entails an investment of almost 14 million florins and is a value asset for the tourism and business sector of Aruba.
This new model ASD Tug 2811 is currently the most modern tugboat in the Caribbean and is equipped with the most up-to-date tools to offer an excellent service to cruise ships and freight ships that visit our island.
A tugboat is a necessary tool to provide good port service for our island. For a long time Aruba Ports Authority (APA) depended on another company to provide tugboat services. Now has its own tugboat to comply with the demand from the tourism and business sector.
