Based on the Valiant class (YT-802) of US Navy Yard tugboats, the YT-808 will be the first of four updated variations built by Dakota Creek Industries.  Designed by Robert Allan Ltd., these 90 foot tugs will be used by the US Navy to perform ship-handling duties for the full range of US Navy surface warships, barges and submarines.  With an updated deck house, new EPA Tier IV engines and a new fendering system, these Tugs will have a free running speed of 12 knots minimum and a Bollard Pull of 40 short tons minimum.  Construction on these tugs is planned to commence early in 2019.
