Sold! 2007 American Tug 41 #21

2007 AT-41 #021  Reduced by $75,500   Tsillan is now SOLD! 

I worked very closely with the owner when we had Tsillan constructed in 2007.  He had previously made 5 trips to Alaska on his last boat and was specific in how Tsillan was to be optioned and outfitted.  It was nice to work with a gentleman that had very well found opinions and made great decisions in her commissioning.  She is a fabulous American Tug 41!

Tsillan was built for an experienced yachtsman and includes many special touches.  She has the Cummins QSC-540 common rail engine, Onan 9Kw gensest, Village Marine 600 watermaker, Nick Jackson 3-axis crane, Raymarine electronics suite with 3ea multifunction displays & 48-mile open array radar.

She is a beatiful boat.  Deep brick red carpet and upholstery with gorgeous Jatoba wood.  
Call Steve to arrange a private tour at 206-930-6139.  Moored in a covered slip in Edmonds, WA.

Let SJY help pay for your American Tug!

San Juan Yachting would like to add a couple of Tugs in their charter fleet

The very best charter fleet in the pacific northwest would like to help pay for your American Tug!

I had a great conversation with Rick Sale, manager of San Juan Yachting in Bellingham, WA. He said they need a couple of tugs and he can keep them working for you. His conservative pro-forma shows that just over half the cost of your tug can be paid by others; and that is before any depreciation or tax advantage is figured in, which can really save you.

Rick sent me the cash flow projections for an AT-41 and AT-34. Lightly pre-owned boats such as Forever Friday (AT-34) or Cinnamon Girl (AT-41) cash flow extremely well. I would be happy to forward these pro-formas, just call 206-321-2164 or email me at:

Let’s get together with Rick and work out the details.

Thank you,   Steve Scruggs, CPYB
