Good looking boat. I've never seen another but it's a big area. A lot of custom builders plus some talented builder owners, could be a one off.

It was professionally built and marketed. It is a Bruce Roberts design .. The seller sent me the sales literature all in PDF.* Built by a company in BC Canada

Yeah, I cannot remember the builder but I think it was built in the Fraser River about 10-15 yrs ago. Don't quote me but something clicked, of course it could be a brain hiccup. If I;m right the builder were commercial trying out the recreational market.

Fast Water Marine was the builder...** I don't think it would accomodate our family of four, but it is pretty neat.*

RE: Anybody ever seen another one of these aluminum tugs?

I recall seeing a review of this boat in Pacific Yachting back when it was introduced; very intriguing. I think it was called a Pacific Isle or something similar. I can't open the link so don't know its dimensions; 30 feet or so?

Sure has nice lines.

Link wouldn't work for me either so I did a Google search for nanaimo craigslist. Found it listed on Nov 28.

30' Welded Aluminum Cruising Tug - $69000 (Victoria)


30' Pacific Cruiser Tug, heavy duty build in aluminum, perkins 85hp diesel, heat, hot water, dry exhaust, etc

The link in the first post is correct as far as I can see.

Hope that helps, nice rugged looking boat.

RE: Anybody ever seen another one of these aluminum tugs?

The boat yard I work at is five miles up the New River in Fort Lauderdale. The river is narrow and has sharp bends, sometimes strong currents and it is lined with very expensive yachts. Many of the yacht captains will hire tugs to assist them in running the river so our yard has tugs for this. This one was built in*1973 by Gladding Hearn*and is the original un painted aluminum.

That is the Tug "HERO" it used to be owned by Capt Red Koch I believe. I think it had an air cooled Deutz for main engine power. In talking with the owner, he said he never had an overheating issue...in the South Florida sun with bare alumn. His daughter and son in law used to work with him also. Her refit ex-Coast guard 30' FG boat was "Heroine" They had a good business towing and shifting large yachts up and down the New River to the various yards . Etremely competent single screw boatsman/boatswomen!

RE: Anybody ever seen another one of these aluminum tugs?

We are headed up next week to take a look.* We have been planning and had been talking witha builder about building a custom steel boat (38')*

*

I stumbled upon this one and am not sure it is is the right one, slightly small for our family, but much more affordable...

There are few things I would like to change, but nothing that can not be addressed in time.* It would get us on the water sooner..

If it's really only 30' it only needs 40hp so it's very overpowered. Can't be much different than my Willard in displacement.*

******* God, all of a sudden I feel so old. (Not to mention somewhat effeminate.)

******* If I remove my rails will it make me feel more manly?

RE: Anybody ever seen another one of these aluminum tugs?

Hahaha *You've got me there Walt. Fair and square. I threw that out for bait for someone. If I had that aluminum tug yacht I'd have as much rail as I've got on Willy. I usually do'nt like the looks of the things and I really dislike it when they get in the way of my fwd visibility. Willy is almost perfect. This is the view I expect to have on a boat. In the pic my fwd hatch was refinished a long time ago.*

"Railings are for old ladies". Or maybe Erica had one of those "operations"? (Couldn't resist. My mind is in the gutter since the "bung" thread)
