34 foot AMERICAN TUG

We have sold our home so that we can realize our long time dream to live aboard a trawler and travel the Great Loop. We are looking for a 34 foot AMERICAN TUG which we would like to purchase sometime between April and September 2018. If you are thinking of selling your AT we would love to hear from you. Thank you.

With that time frame you could have the factory build you a brand new one. (Albeit the smallest is now known as a 365.) It's very impressive to see the factory and how you can customize one to your own requirements.

Thanks Bob.
We don't want to buy a brand new one. We would like to get into the cruising scene at a lower starting point. Looking for a 1998 to 2001 34"

American Tug 34 Sandrobber Available for Sale

We have just completed the Great Loop in our 2001 AT34 and it is now available for sale. This boat is in beautiful condition and you will be hard pressed to find one of its vintage in better condition. Meticulous maintenance records and oil analyses are available. Pictures and Specifications can be found in the right side bar of our blog: Sandrobber.blogspot.com

Please feel free to contact me directly at rstilwell@advantagemedia.org as I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have. This tug is currently berthed just outside of Knoxville, TN.

Regards,
Rob

It does look like a great boat. Now we are going to get fussy and would like a fly bridge.

Fred...best of luck with your search for the AT that best suits your needs. The flybridge models are harder to come by, so patience may be needed. If you haven't already, you might try to contact Greg Clark of Traditional Yachts in Jupiter, FL. He is one of the AT dealers, and usually has a pretty good ear to the ground for tugs that are currently available, or soon to come available.

If you ever want a sounding board on AT's in general, or if your plans change, please feel free to contact me...I'd be happy to help if I can.

Regards,
Rob

I believe the flybridge on the AT 34 is a separate piece that is attached with 4 bolts. It is removable when trucking these boats to the east coast. Those of you wanting an AT 34 with a flybridge should contact the factory to see what options you might have to purchase and install one.

Thanks Rob and Larry.
Our excitement is building as we are dealing on a fly-bridge model and I hope to make an announcement very soon with some very good news. Hope to be cruising in 2018

Climbing up and down the ladder to the flybridge, while cruising, isn't my idea of retirement fun.

Climbing the fly bridge
Higher air draft for bridge openings
Not in air conditioning
Bait for deer and black flies
Second set of electronics to maintain
More to wash
Now your talking sunbrella cost and continued care
