Abstract: One of the most interesting chapters of the romantic sailing ship era is the manner in which little steam paddle tugs, very often small vessels of low power, helped the large sailing ships, in or out of harbour. For many years, this was the only employment tugs could secure. During the first few years of the second half of the last century, although the British Admiralty operated a few steam tugs in Maltese waters, private shipowners were not very much interested in this business. While in other harbours competition between tug owners was keen, the port of Malta remained without any commercial tugs.
