The interior is unfinished and currently laid out for two staterooms. Enter from doors port and starboard to the main saloon. Here a stainless steel countertop and sink have been built next to an apartment sized refrigerator. The ceiling has been replaced (which forms the upper deck). You'll find the original conventional doors and dutch doors to access the cabin from several places. Forward of the saloon is a hallway to starboard. Midship you will find an athwartship hallway. Here, the tiled head compartment is accessed and the rough in for the upper stateroom. An electrical panel is in this passageway as is access to the engine room via a steel ladder. On the main deck the starboard passageway continues past storage lockers to the pilothouse. The pilothouse is accessed via a short ladder. The curved pilothouse is fully functional, but requires restoration and replacement of the roof eaves outside. A large chart table is aft in the pilothouse with commercial electrical panels port and starboard. The boat is steered hydraulically, and a Sperry steering system is installed at the helm which provides for reliable control. From the athwartship passageway and down the steel ladder you can access the massive engine room. On the foredeck, a steel hatch leads down a ladder to the forepeak. There is a rough frame for a berth, but no other finishing. The intent was for this to be a second stateroom when finished. The anchor chain locker is all the way forward in this space.

This historic Canadian tugboat was built right in the first place and has been substantially restored in structure and systems. The boat was central to a business plan for chartering, and as such it was thoroughly surveyed last year and noted deficiencies were addressed. You will find big ship systems in this offshore tug that perform well. The electrical panel and AC systems are first rate marine commercial grade. Two diesel generators provide for ships power and systems operation (air and hydraulic). The Caterpillar D348 V-12 marine diesel has been serviced including a rebuild of the heat exchanger. The two 2,500 gallon fuel tanks were thoroughly cleaned. This boat is operational and includes a liferaft and other safety systems for offshore voyaging as the business plan involved transit to Mexico for charter work in Los Cabos.
The topsides cabin and pilothouse were worked on to install a new upper deck roof, staircase, head compartment, and rough in for wiring and interior. The main cabin, stateroom, and pilothouse remain unfinished. The work involves carpentry and trim out for accommodations as desired. In addition, a large forepeak space could be converted into a private cabin.
This is a well found historic commercial tugboat that is ready for completion as a liveaboard, charter boat, or continued operation as a commercial vessel.
