Title: TOWING VESSEL
Abstract:
The invention concerns a vessel (20) comprising a towing device and one or more hulls (61, 62, 63). The towing device comprises a towline (64); a tow point (65) where the vessel (20) exerts a force, especially a horizontal force, onto the towline (64) when applying a tensile force to an object by means of the towline (64). The tow point (65) is provided on the vessel. The towing device further comprises a first propulsion system (71) and a second propulsion system (72). The first propulsion system and second propulsion system each comprise an omni-directional propulsion device (71, 72). Viewed in longitudinal direction of the vessel, the tow point 65 is arranged between the first omni-directional propulsion device (71) and the second omni-directional propulsion device (72).
