Aluminum American Tug

Not really an American Tug but looks one in gray of course. If I lived in the PNW, I could really like this boat.

Merely a British price tag in the ad.
Matsumoto Shipyards, who built that boat in 1953, only recently sold out to Condo developers. They were a well known, well respected North Vancouver Shipyard building commercial boats and good quality pleasure boats. That boat is actually located in Anacortes Wa at present.

More than a wink and nod at the AT and NT.
Definitely a west coat boat. No A/C
No generator but, they seem to have compensated by 3 solar panels, larger alternator and lots batteries.

Personal observations: I would appreciate a darker wood interior. I do like the keel cooler and dry stack.
Overall, it appears to be a fantastic 'couples', west coast boat.

I think both AT and NT could learn a few things from the boat lay out.

Why is this boat being called a “Tug”?

Looks 100% trawler to me except for the planing hull.

Personally, looks like a hospital inside, all white, no character, no soul.

Tanks are small considering the size and weight of the boat and number of heads.

Only a mill or more over priced.

Compare her to Shilo at around $1.8 million less.

Freedom, a 1926 Trumpy 104'

We spent the weekend at Charleston City Dock and explored the city. Great time. The Marina staff put us on the Mega Dock, with all the other super-yachts. [we were mega-filler, between super-yachts]. Freedom, a beautiful 1926 Trumpy 104' came in. Prettiest boat on the dock.

Makes a person want to say to the owner, "I'll show you mine (boat) if you show me yours (boat)"

That's why it's being towed. War ships can be here, but they can't be operational. We have a WW2 submarine here in Muskegon, it has no propellers. They used it to film a movie a few years back, and it had to be towed out to the lake for filming. My dinner boat was the support vessel for the film crew. Pretty cool. Too bad the movie sucked. "Below", it's terrible.

I once docked between two of those monsters in Sarasota. My poor Manatee looked like a fender.

Interesting photo of the engine room here. I didn’t see another generator anywhere in the other photos, could this be a wing engine for get-home that serves as a generator too, with the transmission disengaged? (...or vice versa, if you prefer?) And I assume I’m looking at an older reverse osmosis unit?

The Odd One

Saw this odd “interesting boat” while changing my oil. It’s over w all the American Tug boats. Don’t know anything about this boat but it’s interesting and weird in that it has the stern of a 28’ boat and the bow of a 45’ boat.
Shoulda taken a stern shot I sooze.
She looks Bristol though.
