Azimuthing Stern Drive (ASD)

Azimuthing stern drive (ASD) vessels are fitted with podded propulsors in the vessels stern. They may be augmented with thrusters in the bow. The propulsors may be Z-drives, C-drives, or electric-drive (i.e., Azipods). ASD is commonly used to differentiate this propulsion layout from traditionally shafted or vertical-drive tugs.
