New Listing: 2002 American Tug 34

2002 American Tug 34  Hull #20     Cindy T     $252,000




The Cindy T is a beautiful American Tug 34.  Nicely kept by her original owners and in nice original shape.  Moored in Bayfield, Wisconsin on fresh water.  This is just the way you want to find an AT-34; they were great boats coming out of the factory in La Conner, WA and are best if preserved by a careful owner without modifications.

Equipped with the Cummins 6BTA5.9 330-hp 6-cylinder diesel, she will cruise all day while just sipping fuel at 7.3-knots, or you can utilize the semi-displacement planing hull and take her up to about 16-knots if needed to avoid adverse current or cross the Straights in style.  A range of 1600 miles will make extended cruising easy.

She has a Raymarine electroncis suite including ST-60 Tridata, Depth, RL70c Color Radar RL530 color chart plotter and the very capable ST-5000 hydraulic autopilot.  Side Power bow thruster, Air-conditioning, Reverso oil change system, trolling valve on the marine gear, Racor dual fuel filtration, automatic fire extinguisher, AGM battery bank with Blue Seas electrical panels.  She has all the good gear.

Let's go see the Cindy T in Wisconsin.  This is a very nice and low-hour American Tug 34, the perfect cruising boat for the Great Loop, Puget Sound & Alaska, Florida lifestyle or your family's next Expedition.   Call Steve Scruggs 206-930-6139 or Steve@americantugs.com.

Waypoint 36 debut at Anacortes Boat Show

American Tugs is very proud to announce the debut of the new Waypoint 36.
Anacortes logo w dates


Please come to the Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show and see our latest model; the new Waypoint 36 by American Tugs.
Waypoint Photo - profile 2-window

The Waypoint 36 is a new model being introduced by Tomco Marine Group that is designed around our current 365 hull and deck tooling.  The idea behind this project is to offer the boating public a more affordable, quality trawler that is capable of handling the waters from California to Alaska or the Great Loop.


Waypoint layout with labels


We are building an all-new model, but using the same hull and deck structures of the 365 with the same fiberglass construction process and materials.  The interior will have more molded components but will also use much of the gorgeous wood joinery that American Tug is known for.  This blend of low-maintenance glass structure plus traditional shaker style cabinetry will be beautiful.  We are investing in new tooling, using aerospace developed adhesives and incorporating a streamlined build process.  This efficiency in build allows us to offer a lower price.

Two-staterooms + convertible dinette = Sleeps six!
The layout will include two-staterooms and a salon/galley with dinette that converts to a third bunk.  This layout will offer more accommodations than other boats in class and be a perfect cruiser for younger families, fishing buddies or travelling with grand kids.

This is a 17,000-lb yacht built to American Tug standards, offered for an introductory price of $350,000.   Call Steve Scruggs for more information at 360-466-2961 or steve@americantugs.com
