Towing disabled vessels is at the heart of our services, both local and long distance. We tow boats both commercial and pleasure along the Maine coast and New England to port for repairs.

Marine Salvage & Recovery

We provide customized recovery and salvage solutions to suit almost any situation. Whether your vessel is full of water, underwater, on the rocks, or anywhere it is not supposed to be, Determination Marine keeps a diverse fleet of towing and salvage vessels from small skiffs to 44’ offshore ready tow boats to show up with the right equipment for the job. Our smaller outboard vessels are easily trailerable on relatively short notice if need be. We also have a mobile salvage trailer that is kept stocked and ready to go.
