Among their massive range of services coming out of the Netherlands and into just about anywhere else that you could think of, they provide a range of high-end tugs and boats to cover large-scale transportation across the globe.
The company itself has a colorful and interesting past, having been involved in a whole range of massive changes within the industry over the last few years that has seen significant growth within the commercial navy industry. Using close to 150 years of experience, the company is capable of providing the kind of high-end logistics and services that are needed all across the world. The company itself is owned by Royal Boskalis Westminster, having been purchased completely in 2010. The company itself has an annual revenue of around €589m, too, making it one of the most effective and reliable naval companies within the whole of Europe.
Their massive range of products and ships ensures that people keep coming back to them time and time again to get the kind of progressive assistance they provide on such a complete range of different products and services, ensuring people get the help that they need as soon as possible.
In this package, you’ll gain access to three unique ships – and one of them is the excellent Smit Rotterdam Heavy Tug. This massive boat can be challenging to command, but when you get used to it you’ll find that a whole new FSX dimension will open up in front of you!
This Heavy Tug is rather gargantuan in size in comparison with many of the other more domestic boats that people might be used to, as it runs at around 245ft in length, 54ft in weight and 114ft in height. This large tug, therefore, can carry a significant amount on it and this makes it as a hugely useful boat to use for resource gathering as well as trade, ensuring you’ll get to use a powerful and effective boat along the way
A draft of 23ft also ensures that this machine can carry out its journeys without too much potential for damage or discomfort for those who are controlling it – a large, thick draft ensures the boat is well protected throughout
A displacement of around 2,273 ton gives you proof that you are using something that is truly sturdy and capable of carrying even the most difficult of products across the sea
With 16,000 gallons of fuel, too, this is something that carries an immense level of fuel in comparison to many of its contemporaries and ensures it will be able to make long journeys despite carrying such an incredibly heavy load
2x one touch start-up switch for the one engine, making sure you don’t need to go through some long winded and complex procedure to get the vehicle to start running in the first place!
A maximum speed of 14 knots, so although this will feel slow when compared to many racing and tourist boats it’s actually relatively quick for a heavy tug boat
2 x 11,000HP engines to help you pull this tug through even the most drastic and difficult of weather, no matter what you feel it needs to achieve along the way to make that a possibility - this is like a sea equivalent of a bull!
A faithful recreation of the Smit Rotterdam tug North Sea Research Vessel and the Kustwacht Dutch Coast Guard. These are all completely accurate recreations of these famous boats, and each model has had a specific camera location for the most important parts of the boat for smooth and effective management throughout the flight
A wide array of detailed and impressive models are included with three models and three variants of each included. This gives you plenty of reason to see the positives behind using such an impressive juggernaut, given their massive size and scale – not only will you have some very impressive boats to use; they’ll all look very different too!
Supplemented with faithful and authentic textures that look excellent, you’ll find it much easier to get into the feel and style of this tug as it will look just as it should when compared with footage and images etc.
A whole range of fresh moving parts that make the whole thing look better than ever. This includes things like the rudder, the gauges, the switches, the doors, windshield wipers, radars and even the flags to give you something that really captures how much is going on when a boat is being used
Controlled objects allow you to take total grip of the boat and give it all the additions and changes that you want –from the wipers to the speed as well as turning, lighting, air conditioning and even dropping the anchor you’ll have complete authority on this impressive tug
A panel to let you get full control of the boat via a virtual cockpit – this will give you 3D gages, switches and instruments to pick from that are easily recognizable and all completely active. This lets you take total control of every possibly feature
A whole new group of staff have been created to be used onboard the tug, adding a nice new flavor and style to the whole thing. These staff is highly detailed and are actively alive, making it nice and easy for you to see just how realistic they act and behave
Documentation created from scratch to give you an idea of just what you are dealing with in terms of the size, specifications, performance requirements and maximum capabilities of this brilliant big tug boat. Well worth using if you want to enjoy something that’s easy on the eye and effective to use

I have just been having a look at the boat section for FSX. This tug boat as well as x55 Drifter Sailing Yacht has the navigation lights fitted on the wrong sides. Port is green and starboard is red, Port in landlubbers lingo is left.
Please create a version for MSFS 2020! I liked this Ship and travelled 4 times around the world on FSX. But on MSFS 2020 I miss it! Price no problem!
