Description

If you're looking for a personal cruiser with superb seamanship, comfort, and fuel efficiency, a tug boat may be exactly what you're looking for. As a cross between a trawler yacht and a downeast boat, tug boats generally share many of the same characteristics. Whether you are crossing the gulf stream over to the Bahamas or cruising up the coast of the Pacific Northwest, many of the mainstream tug boat brands offer exceptional performance at slower, more efficient speeds.

At United, we have many yacht brokers experienced in the sale of pre-owned tug boats and the construction of new builds. We invite you to contact us today and let one of our professional yacht brokers assist you in finding the right tug boat that fits your requirements.

SPEAK TO A SALES PROFESSIONAL

Whether venturing on a long-range cruise or using your tug boat as a liveaboard, these seaworthy "workhouses" are characteristically sturdy, durable, and strong. There is often a deep-v hull and high bow flare which easily cuts through waves, even in choppy seas. Premium tug boat brands use high-quality materials including resin-infusion processes in order to create a strong hull. Typically most tug boats consist or one or two cabins, as they are meant to offer a more private cruising experience for the owner.

Some of the most popular tug boat brands today include:

Nordic Tug Boats, for example, offers models from the mid-20 foot range up to a 54 tug boat. Designed for luxury, comfortable cruising Nordic Tugs are built in the United States since the 1970's. Many tug brands often use fuel-efficient diesel inboard engines like the Volvo Penta series that are known for reliability.

Ranger Tug Boats have been in business now for over 60 years and originated in the rough waters of the Pacific Northwest. The pilothouse on a Ranger Tug is almost unmistakable, a unique salon-line enclosed area for piloting in total comfort and shelter from the elements.
