The Abnaki class is a class of United States Navy fleet ocean tugs which began construction in November 1942. The class comprises 24 ocean going tugboats. The ships were constructed in response to the needs of World War II, but members of the class served in the Korean War and Vietnam War as well. The Navy no longer has any ships of this class in active duty.
