Ashton Marine, LLC Purchases Tug
May 2015 – Ashton Marine, LLC purchased the Tug Candace Elise (formally Stephen Dann) from Dann Ocean Towing out of Tampa, FL. The 106’ x 32’ x 14’ – 2600 HP tug will be used to perform marine transportation on the Great Lakes, ship assists, barge towing, transport oversized cargo, liquid and dry bulk products, and salvage projects on the Great Lakes.
The 2900 mile trip from New York City to our home base in Muskegon, MI will take about 2 weeks. Once the tug arrives in Muskegon the crew will begin the 2 month retrofitting project to get her ready for the Great Lakes transportation projects.
