The Tugboat is a vehicle in RUST introduced in the Deep Sea update. This large, player controlled boat is a unique vehicle in the game due to the ability for players to authorize and deploy items inside the boat as well as on the decks. Only a few tugboats spawn on vanilla servers around harbors and they look like the inactive tugboat models we’ve seen in the game for several years.
The Tugboat requires low-grade fuel to operate and provides a sonar system to help players keep an eye on the dangers around them while at sea.
