TYCHO is a narrow boat of steel on iron construction built by W J Yarwood in 1936. Originally intended for Grand Union Canal Carrying Company use with Butty 373, she was shortened to 45 ft by order of the Ministry of War Transport in 1942. Her length included a 5 ft ice breaking ram. The vessel served as British Waterways Board maintenance tug for many years and is the only vessel which still retains its ice breaking blade.
