SAAM Towage Panama has been successfully serving Panamanian ports from our bases in Balboa and Cristobal since 1986.
We provide a variety of services, ranging from harbour towage, safety standby work, coastal towing, and static towing of tankers. Thanks to the continued professionalism and flexibility of our regional and global network, SAAM Towage Panama has expanded its services to include such ports as Bahia Las Minas, Chiriqui Grande, Colon, and Taboguilla.
Our fleet is designed to be compact, highly manoeuvrable, and powerful, ideally suited for busy harbours and waterways where space is limited, as well as for more general operations in open water. Our tugboats comply with the latest regulations and have fire-fighting (FiFi1) capabilities.
All Panamanian tugs provide proven international technology, design, and standardization. SAAM Towage Panama is focused on recruiting local Panamanian Captains, Chief Engineers, and Mariners and continually invests in training crews and staff to ensure reliable and safe maritime service. This combination of crew and tugs provides consistently safe and high-quality service along with competitive rates.
