The tugboat "Magni" in Reykjavik (Iceland) use as pilot boat to pick up the pilot from the cruise ship "FTI Berlin". "Magni" was built by Damen shipyards in Gorinchem (Netherlands). The tug is a Dana stan tug 2208 operated by Reykjavicurhofn (IMO: 9339727). Under the flag of Iceland.

A tugboat (tug) is a boat that maneuvers vessels by pushing or towing them. Tugs move vessels that either should not move themselves, such as ships in a crowded harbor or a narrow canal, or those that cannot move by themselves, such as barges, disabled ships, log rafts, or oil platforms. Tugboats are powerful for their size and strongly built, and some are ocean-going. Some tugboats serve as icebreakers or salvage boats. Early tugboats had steam engines, but today most have diesel engines. Many tugboats have firefighting monitors, allowing them to assist in firefighting, especially in harbors.
