Salvage is defined as saving property from danger. This extends back to 1645 from the Old French word – Salver meaning "to save."  Stevens Towing Company has expertise and equipment "to save" your property from danger.  Our Salvage Master, Jenkins Montgomery, has worldwide salvage experience from his time with Titan Salvage.  He participated in saving an oil rig in the North Sea, a Ned Lloyd ship off of Brazil, barge removals in India and South Africa, and salvage of a 1000ft vessel offshore of Germany.  Jenkins is most noted for his work as the operator that lifted the C.S.S. Hunley from her watery grave offshore of Sullivan's Island, SC. Our Salvage Master is an experienced leader in our industry.

Stevens Shipyard, Charleston, SCStevens Towing owns fleet of tugboats for our use in 'saving property.' They range from pushboats (300 hp) to deep sea  units (1800 hp with Nozzles).  We also have a series of operational barges to suit each project as it arises.  Our largest and strongest asset currently is the 'Savannah Giant' a 500 ton Twin Boom Shearleg Derrick.  The Savannah Giant is mounted on an 180ft x 80ft x 10ft ABS certified deck barge.
