The Gull is a fluvio-maritime tug. Widely used in the XIX th and XX th centuries, these ships were initially Steam then diesel engines helped the bigger boats to maneuver upon entry and exit to the port.
The Gull was built in 1933 by Ateliers and Chantiers de Bretagne in Nantes on behalf of the Bridges and Roads. In the service of towing ships frequenting the port of Nantes for 50 years, this boat was also used during the floods of the Loire and during the winter frost as icebreaker to avoid the complete obstruction of the course of the Loire and therefore the destruction of the piles of the bridges.
In 1980, the Gull was ceded to Ancenis Dredging Company specializing in the extraction of Loire sand for market gardening and construction. Nevertheless, the maneuvering of this tug in this part of the Loire was delicate. The Gull was quickly disarmed and abandoned in the arm of the New Island at Oudon.
Considering the heritage and historical interest of this tug, the Association Bateaux de Port of Nantes (ABPN) bought it for the symbolic franc on January 13, 1995. However, it will be necessary to wait until the year 2000 for the Gull to return to his post current in the Ceineray basin.
