Default Characteristics of a Space Tug?

I've just started a new space craft model.

As the physical design already suggests, this is no sleek jump ship, but a blocky and decidedly unglamorous ship.

I see this crate moving large ships or detachable cargo modules around, so it may not need any kind of jump drive at all? Conversely, it probably has huge manoeuvre drives combined with large thrusters.

Of course my question really is, what characteristics would a space tug have that might make it interesting as a PC ship once it has been pensioned off?

My current working theory is it might make a nice asteroid mining ship, especially if it has no need for jump drive, and has plenty of 'dynage' to spare.
