April 1963 and the tugs were rushed to fight the fire that engulfed Chandris' Bretagne.
They did'nt managed much and Bretagne was left a charred hulk.

A Vernicos tug, I would say of ww2 US origin


and a Matsas tug were among them

A trio of her in three different liveries.

I think the latest additions to this thread have strayed for the topic ie; Steam Tugs. (I am as guilty as others, My Apologies.)

Here is the MINOTAUROS - my nameshake  ;) - which operated in the late-60s/early to mid 70s as a harbour tug for Efthymiades, helping the lines' big ferries and cruise ships in Piraeus.

She was allegedly built in 1912 and after the collapse of Efthymiades Lines in the mid70s she was laid up in Piraeus until around 1982. Her traces were then lost. Any information on her past history would be really appreciated.
