The first impression of the American Tug is the quality of the interior. As you step into the salon from the aft cockpit you are immediately surrounded by beautiful joinery work made from teak wood with its beautiful straight grain. The textures of carpet and Ultra Leather are warm and inviting. These boats feel right.
The salon features large windows which flood the interior with light. You can see forward past the galley to the raised pilothouse, it is this open feel that makes the interior great for entertaining. An L-shape settee is on starboard. The galley is forward and on the port side. The entertainment center with a 26" LCD television is on starboard.
Up a few steps from the salon is the raised pilothouse. American Tug makes full use of the large "stack", the defining feature of a tug boat, and provides ample headroom above these stairs. The pilothouse is large, open and provides full 360-degree sightlines. The console is full size and houses dual Raymarine 15-inch displays. There are sliding doors on both the port & starboard sides. The port side of the pilothouse has additional seating for 3. On starboard is an additional refer and a dedicated hanging locker. A gorgeous Stidd helm chair is on centerline.
Forward is the guest stateroom with a double Pullman berth. A single bunk is above the double allowing forguests, kids or fishing buddies, the upper bunk is also perfect for guest luggage and storage. The guest stateroom has a private head with full shower. Ample storage and good ventilation are provided.
The master stateroom is down a few steps and features a walk-around queen berth, a very large private head & shower and nine full suspension drawers plus a cedar lined hanging locker. This full beam master has 4ea stainless portlights for flow-thru ventilation.
Espar forced-air diesel fired heat circulates warmth throughout the boat. There are three additional 110-volt heaters all independently controlled for keeping her warm on the dock or in the off-season. The joinerwork is a warm toned teak wood and was custom ordered by the original owner, Journey is the last boat built by American Tug with a teak interior. Carpet is a rich commercial quality in very neutral tone custom selected. The upholstery is Pecan colored Ultra Leather.
The American Tug 41 has a U-shaped galley with a nice island, ideal for preparing family meals or entertaining. The moulded Granicote counter has a deep double sink, moulded backsplash and fiddles for easy maintenance. A three-burner Princess Gourmet LPG stove is mounted on the forward counter, complemented by a Sharp convection electric microwave & oven. A large Nova Kool refer & freezer is near centerline. Large capacity cargo drawers & storage cabinets provide wonderful storage. Abundant light and great ventilation via an opening port side window. Waeco chest freezer adds capacity.
Journey is fitted with an incredible state of the art "Glass Cockpit" networked electronics package which features dual Raymarine 15-inch G-Series daylight viewable displays in the pilothouse
Included in the package are the Raymarine 4kw open array HD "High Def" digital radar, Raymarine 125 GPS, Raymarine AIS receiver, Raymarine fishfinder module with the large bronze 600-watt high power transducer. Also included is a Raymarine ST60+ Depth gauge for constant monitoring. Masthead aft facing and cockpit cameras installed.
Communications are handled by an Icom M504 VHF w/ remote mounted microphone and hailer is also included. A Secondary Uniden UM625c VHF radio provides redundancy.
The autopilot is the powerful Raymarine S2G corepack with compensation for yaw, controlled with either the ST8000 series rotary dial display or the Raymarine smart wireless remote control.
Entertainment electronics include a Sharp 26" LCD televison recess mounted in the salon. A Clarion AM/FM/CD/DVD stereo is integrated with both salon and pilothouse speakers.
Equipped with a custom Mark Tanner built radar mast with wings for all current and forseeable electronics. The mast is built of powdercoated aluminum for longterm durability and ease of maintenance, it is gorgeous.
Electronics in the pilothouse:
The American Tugs have wonderful electrical systems that feature ABYC compliance, proper yacht cable wiring, Blue Seas electrical panels, Blue Seas smart battery combiners, AGM batteries and Magnum Energy inverter/chargers. These are all top of the line manufacturers.
The system as designed by American Tug is robust and sized such that the owners do not need to fuss over consumption. Journey is fitted with dual alternators on the main engine that feed the house & engine start battery banks. There are three 8-D AGM house bank batteries. Additionally she has a 2,000-watt Magnum Energy power inverter featuring a 100-amp multi-step battery charger. Interior lighting upgraded with LED bulbs for low power consumption.
Her shore power system is the 30-amp 120-volt standard allowing to be plugged in at any normal dock. The Northern Lights 6-kw genset puts out 50-amps of power.
Equipped with the Volvo D9-500 engine. The large 9.1-Liter single Volvo engine delivers excellent efficiency at hull speed and the ability to run fast in "semi-displacement" at a 12-knot cruise. This is the best of both worlds!
The Twin Disc marine gear is fitted with electronically controlled helm station. Due to the efficiency of the "common rail" electronic fuel injection, the engine is equally happy sipping just 3 gallons an hour at 7.75-knots or crossing the Straits when it is rough out, going just a bit faster and keeping everyone comfortable. Control your own destiny and head thru all three narrows up near Big Bay in a single day, then cruise slow and economically where timing and currents are less of an issue. The real power of a semi-displacement boat is opening up alternatives; expect to spend 75-90% of your time at a economical displacement speed, yet run fast thru the rapids and Straits so you control your schedule.
Manual trolling valve allows operation at slower than standard speeds for fishing.
