This American Tug is built like no other, and this one is set apart by having almost every high end option available.  From the Garmin Electronics, to the retractable radar arch, to the extra wide Pilot Chair, to the very rare flying bridge option, to the Cummins 600 hp engine upgrade, the list goes on and on.  Even many standard items that are included on most American Tugs are upgraded on this boat.  The manufacturer, Tomco Marine, employs many non-traditional methods of construction that improves the quality and long term serviceability for many years of ownership.  

This great tug has been taken care of by its owners with extreme care. In fact, it still has that "new boat" smell.

Upon entry in to the Saloon, you notice the Sapele Wood striped look, Corian counter tops, stainless steel lights and fixtures, Teak and Holly flooring that looks like new, and 2 beautiful  leather recliners to starboard. Forward to starboard is built in cabinet with an additional large freezer inside. Forward is the large dinette for your enjoyment. To port is a "L" shaped settee with a coffee table that can be converted to a bed for the extra quests.  The 40" flat screen television is built in to the galley cabinetry, strategically located for easy viewing by everyone in the saloon with a sound system capable of supplying the pilot house and the saloon with a nice audio experience. The spotless galley is forward to port with every modern feature.  The silhouette blinds provide different levels of privacy yet allowing a soft light in to the saloon from the large framed windows.

Three steps up, you enter the pilot house with an ice maker at the top of the stairs. The helm console is spacious, yet leaves plenty of windshield view for comfortable operation. The sole is teak and holly and cabinetry matches the saloon.  A beautiful overhead recessed light fixture with an oval teak panel, highlighted with a compass rose, provides an impressive nighttime ambiance.  The pilot house settee and table is a great place for guests to ride and have a nice all around view of the scenery. There are tight sealed doors on both sides of the pilot house and easy to access stairs up to the Flybridge

Off to starboard, down stairs are the two staterooms.  The guest stateroom and ensuite private head, with full shower, is spacious and comfortable.  There is a queen bed with a top quality mattress. The washer and dryer is in a closet forward and even has a hide away ironing board.  A hatch leads to below deck storage and offers access to the bow thruster and other mechanical items.

Aft and down 3 steps is the beautiful the master suite.  It has a full walk around bed with Custom Air Mattress, lots of storage and lockers.  Both sides of the bed have night stand type cabinetry and wonderful lighting. The master head is ensuite with vacuflush head and large shower

Both staterooms have plenty of natural light and storage, plus their own dedicated air conditioning system.

Up to the rare Flybridge and you will find a fully equipped helm with custom helm seating and a full complement of electronics.
