Shaver’s reputation for safety and reliability is unmatched. Whether you need assistance with a dead or disabled vessel off the Oregon / Washington Coast or the Columbia / Willamette River, our fleet is specially designed, and our crews are highly trained to respond to any vessel emergency.

Shaver’s equipment and capabilities include:

  • Rapid response time – our response tugs are crewed and ready to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We can be at the mouth of the Columbia River just hours after receiving the call. Our highly trained dispatchers will answer the call and assist in your emergency response needs.
  • Offshore rescue towing with Emergency Vessel Attachment and Towing System (EVAT) for establishing a tow connection at sea.
  • Firefighting capabilities for shipboard or shoreside fire emergencies.
  • The ability to make up to the stern of a disabled or dead ship in sheltered waters.
