Tugs, Barges & Freighters

Bufflehead Underway Among the Islands

There's nothing like a small tugboat or freighter for romantic appeal in a power driven vessel. Their rugged working-class character is in marked contrast to the cheap looking (but hardly inexpensive) run of the mill modern motorboats. Most of the glossy boats from glossy ads do nothing well except to burn gasoline, make noise, and leave wakes. All our tugs and the freighter make good displacement speeds with very small diesel engines, while offering strength, safety, accommodations, looks, and durability far beyond most powerboats on the water. All are constructed primarily in sheet materials--plywood, steel, or aluminum, and are planned for very easy setup with the homebuilder in mind.
