"PUDDLES" IS AN IMMACULATELY CLEAN, EXTREMELY WELL MAINTAINED, AND VERY NICELY UPGRADED (NEW ELECTRONICS 2018 - PLUS MORE ) EXAMPLE OF AN ALWAYS FRESHWATER AND UNDERCOVER KEPT AMERICAN TUG-34! SHE SHINES AS A TRUE "TURNKEY SOLUTION" FOR HER NEXT OWNERS! THERE IS NO NICER 34 AMERICAN TUG ON THE WEST COAST!!
PRICE DROP 09/06/19 WAS $327,000, NOW ONLY $318,000!!!
"PUDDLES" cannot and will not be beaten for condition, upgrades and care given! She is a sight to behold when approaching her from the dock, and she does not disappoint when you step onboard and walk through her! You can feel the love and care given by previous owners.
Located just outside of Portland, Oregon, "PUDDLES" is ready to meet her new family! If you are looking for a truly pristine example of a 34 AT, "PUDDLES" is it. Do not hesitate to make your appointment to see her today, she will not last long.
Standing next to her on the dock, the first idea you get of her condition, is her exterior which gleams, virtually as new! This is due to always being in freshwater, and kept undercover by all of her owners. Stepping aboard via the truly large swim platform (even with a dinghy stowed), you have easy access through the transom door, and into the cockpit. A cockpit that for a 34ft boat, has a large enough volume to seat a couple of good size deck chairs for morning coffee with room to spare! A nicely angled stainless steel ladder gets you up to the sundeck/boatdeck, where there is a ton of real estate to watch sunsets/sunrises, sun bathe, or lounge in general for good times. The kind of place grandkids will want to launch into the water from. There is a full stainless rail running the perimeter of the upper deck.
From the aft deck/cockpit, one moves into the very nicely appointed salon on the same level. A nicely laid out galley to starboard, and settee/dinette to port. Upholstery is extremely comfortable in UltraLeather, and blends well with the warm teak interior, which is virtually as new, and wonderfully unblemished. The salon is wonderfully light with her 5 large salon windows, which give her the feel of a much bigger boat. There is a Bose Surround Sound system paired with a JVC stereo in the salon for your listening pleasure. Sinatra crooning over cocktails and dinner while anchored in a quite location, with a gorgeous sunset in the background? It could be yours to live. The galley is well appointed with gorgeous Corian counter tops (extremely durable), dual sinks (with cutting board drop-ins), a large Nova Kool fridge/freezer combo, a Sharp Carousel Microwave, and a Force 10 Electric oven and 3 burner cooktop (generator). The Samsung 28"flatscreen TV is mounted over the galley, to be viewable from the settee. There is also an excellent amount of storage in the galley and under settee.
Moving forward to the pilothouse, you will find a spaciously laid out pilothouse, which is accommodating for both helmsman, and guest with seating on both port and stbd! Well laid out navigation systems and controls are a joy to see, and not so cluttered that you don;t know where to look. New Garmin electronics were installed in 2018 (full package -see descriptions), and needs nothing else added. A Sidepower bow thruster gives you the added maneuverability that makes docking these 34 AT's an absolute joy. Under the pilothouse floor is the impeccably maintained and spotless engine room. Access is through a floor hatch in the pilothouse, and is easy to move in and out of. Dual pilothouse doors make moving around the vessel for docking etc an absolute breeze, as well as an awesome airflow while underway or at anchor. You will see that all fittings and fixtures used on these boats are top quality, and the doors and windows are no exception.
Forward to the master stateroom, you will find a spacious, well thought out stateroom, with a centerline queen berth (High end mattress and new bedding). There is a large head and shower en suite to the stateroom, with Corian counter top, large shower stall with glass door, teak and holly sole. There is access to the head from the stairs (day use for guests) and from the master for private use. The head is a VacuFlush System, with fresh water flushing. The stateroom enjoys a large amount of storage in hanging lockers, under-berth drawers and various lockers. The stateroom also has a lot of natural light through the portlights, as well as a large over head, foredeck opening hatch for light and airflow.
"PUDDLES" comes equipped with a Northern Lights 6kw genset to provide power for the Cruise Air Air-conditioning and reverse cycle heat onboard. There is also a Heatercraft forced air engine coolant heater in pilothouse area, and electric heat in the salon and stateroom.
All in all, "PUDDLES" is ready to cruise. She is well outfitted, upgraded, and maintained with a vast amount of spares. She will not disappoint you and needs nothing. Schedule your viewing now.

Captain Ken's comments:
In the thirty plus years I have been buying, selling and driving boats, "Puddles" is one of the finest examples of a well maintained and cared for boat I have ever seen. This boat is truly in "like new" condition, and will bring the new owner many years of quality service and appearance.

Fresh water boat since new: 1st owner took delivery in Lake Erie, ran the boat in the summer months, and had it hauled and kept in a heated storage facility for winter. 2nd owner searched the USA for the right tug, then shipped the boat to Portland, OR in 2014 and kept it in a boathouse on the Columbia River. Current owner purchased the boat in 2017 and has kept it in a covered moorage in Scappoose, OR. Beautifully kept and maintained with attention to detail by experienced boaters. Ready to cruise, Puddles is a true "turnkey" solution! Her condition is a true testament to proper boat ownership!
