Vessel Details

The DANIEL MC ALLISTER is the largest preserved tug in CANADA and the second oldest oceangoing tug in the world.The Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board has recognized her as being of exceptional importance.The DANIEL MC ALLISTER's home port and vacation have changed several times over the years,and she has undergone several transformations.Originally launched as HELENA in 1907, she began service on the Atlantic coast.In the 1940s, while working on the Great Lakes ,her steam engine was replaced with a more powerful diesel engine.After a major refit in 1956,she was refristened HELEN M.B. later ,in the 1960s in MONTRÉAL.MC ALLISTER Towing Limited named DANIEL MC ALLISTER after a member of this important family of ship owners.She was finally retired from service in the 1980s.

When The OCEAN GROUP purchased MONTRÉAL'S MC ALLISTER Towing limited in 1997,The DANIEL MC ALLISTER was acquired by the Musée Maritime du QUÉBEC which partnered the OLD PORT OF MONTRÉAL CORPORATION to ensure the ship's preservation.The OLD PORT OF MONTRÉAL acquired the ship in 2008 and restoration work began in 2009.

Salut Jack2, superbe capture; la dernière fois où je l'ai vu il était en piteux état...Vraiment la restauration est très réussie..Il a très fière allure.
Amitiés, Robert08
