SALTY 34' American Tug 34 2002

$ 278,000



SALTY is a 2002 AT34 that has been recently improved by her current owners to include many of the same features and equipment seen on newer models of this sought after mid-size trawler. The American Tug name is recognized by yachting enthusiasts and professionals alike as a premium American made vessel characterized by their high level of functionality, quiet operation, versatility and craftsmanship that make it a popular choice for cruising couples on both coasts. The interior lay-out of the AT34 is unique among vessels under 40’—a few stand-out features include a spacious salon with a well-equipped galley boasting a double-sink and generous counter space any gourmet chef would appreciate. The stateroom has a walk-around center queen bed, full-length hanging lockers and ensuite head with a large shower compartment and vanity cabinet with plenty of drawers and counter space. But Salty’s best feature is her roomy and bright pilothouse with 360 degree visibility, separate seating for the captain and crew, and her “salty” pilothouse doors opening to port and starboard. When underway in this quiet and sturdy vessel, it is easy to believe you are on a vessel of much greater size. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this exceptional yacht. Please inquire with any questions or to schedule a private viewing of SALTY here at Cap Sante in beautiful Anacortes, Washington.
