    Cornerstones of Abaco Business: Abaco Tug & Transport and Marsh Harbour Boatyards

    Mr. Vincent Higgs, the original owner of Abaco Tug and Transport in Marsh Harbour, explained how his company came to be. In the late eighties, he said that he invested in a tug company, then located on Green Turtle Cay because his son Laurence was working there. The company had been founded by Percy Pinder. When Mr. Pinder decided to sell the business, Mr. Higgs thought it was a logical move to buy it since the company offered good basis for improvement. Upon its purchase in 1995, the business was moved to its present location in Calcutta.
