Tugs and Towage


Griffin TMS Ltd is a collaboration and joint venture between Griffin Towage & Marine and TMS Maritime, formed in December 2014.

The company harnesses the tug fleet and experienced personnel of Griffin Towage and Marine, together with the marketing and management of TMS. Together, they create a business that is geared to offering reliable, fast and competitive tug services for towage, port operations, standby, guard and supply duties.

The fleet is based in Poole Harbour, on the South coast of England. However, our tugs are regularly placed in other UK ports to enable fast local services to be offered to our many clients around the coast of England, as well as in central and northern Europe.
