Western Star was custom built by Western Towboat Company of Seattle, WA. It was built for the owner of the company and it has been moored (when not cruising) in freshwater since new. The owner (2 family generations) used it to thoroughly explore the NW waters between Washington and Alaska.
In 2018 this fine vessel went through a major refit of the ship's systems including a new engine, new generator, new electronics, new AC and DC electrical systems. It also received a full exterior LP paint job and new bottom paint as well.
Western Star offers a heavily built structure (commercial grade), hundreds of thousands of dollars in upgrades, and 2,000 gallons of fuel capacity. Where do you want to explore?
