VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL! This Steel Coastal Tug was originally built for the U.S. Navy to their specifications. It has been modified in the way of the engine controls, the electronics, main engine, the drum winch on the aft deck, generators, and air compressors to name some of the major components. There have been minor changes to doorways and passages. This tug was stored as USN surplus from 1944 to 1974 and has been in continual commercial operation since 1974. She has been upgraded as necessary to remain economical and commercially viable. Current as of 2018 this Tug has gone through a major renovation including a more powerful main engine. At sea trial she made 12 kn. This tug could continue commercial work for the next owner or could become a great live-aboard coastal cruiser for many NW adventures. Her air-operated control systems would allow operation by a small crew -- even a couple. Should the next owner not be interested in commercial use the seller is willing to remove some of the heavy deck gear (the huge drum winch on the aft deck for instance). The seller is also willing to make moorage available while the new owner finds space of his or her own. Currently this vessel is in the process of completing a 4,300 mile journey. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
