Year 2006
Length 34'4 ft

A couple’s boat with lots of character, the American Tug 34 is designed for the Great Loop, the Inside Passage or a summer excursion to the rocky shores and hidden coves of Down East Maine. A semi-displacement trawler, the American Tug 34 is a salty, comfortable, single-diesel cruiser that’s easy to manage and maintain, while retaining the company’s iconic tugboat lines, including the faux smokestack.

The pilothouse has sliding doors on either side, giving access to both side decks. It also has 360-degree views, with large front windows, side windows and glass in the doors, plus small windows looking aft. A raised seat for two, with footrest, is on the port side, opposite the helm station, which has its own seat for two, so everyone can enjoy the view underway.

The salon is straightforward, with large square side windows letting in a lot of light, plus more windows aft. The L-shaped galley is along the port side and is equipped for cruising. A watertight door leads to the cockpit. The swim platform is integral to the hull.

American Tugs are made in Washington, and they’re all based on designs by the late Seattle naval architect Lynn Senour. The 34 has a full keel; a heavy-duty stainless-steel shoe protects the running gear. Powered by a single Cummins 380 HP diesel that moves the boat effortlessly into the teens although it reaches maximum fuel efficiency in the 8-knot range. Bow and Stern thrusters make maneuvering around the docks a breeze.

A full suite of new Garmin electronics were added in 2018 including Garmin 7612 Chart and a remote Garmin chart in forward berth, Garmin Autopilot, Garmin Fantom Radar, AIS, Sirius Weather, Garmin Weather station, KVH antenna and an ICOM VHF.  A newly installed Webasto 5500 diesel heater will keep you warm on the coldest of nights.

Included in the sale is a 2011 Livingston 9 foot fiberglass catamaran dinghy.  

With only 737 primarily freshwater hours this 34 is truly turn key and comes with everything you need to shove off the dock and set off on adventure.. New zincs, fresh oil change on generator and engine, coolant flush, new impeller completed at the end of 2018 by Cummins of Dearborn Michigan.
