Yard Tugs (YTB, YTM) Built or Acquired Since WWII

Most recent update: September 7, 2012.


After WWII, the Navy had many more yard tugs than it needed, so it was not until the 1960s that it acquired any new ones.  There were two programs.   The YTM program involved conversion of 13 ex-Army LTs and 20 war-built YTMs, while the YTB program involved construction of 87 new boats.  Just to keep everyone thoroughly confused, the two numbering systems overlapped.  In 2007, the Navy suddenly abandoned the old series of numbers and started a new one at YT 800, reacquiring two YTBs that had been sold and renumbering them YT 800 and 801 to get it rolling.  If anyone can add to or otherwise improve the accuracy of this table, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
