Brief Summary

The American Tug 435 (formerly called the 41) is a capable coastal cruiser with a LOA of 43.7’. Her 4'10'' draft will keep her more to the outside of the coasts rather than the ICW or great circle routes.

American Tug is owned by parent company Tomco Marine Group Inc. It’s a company that manufactures coastal cruisers. The three principals are all long time industry specialists that came together when they were all at another company that builds coastal cruisers... the very successful and popular Nordic Tug. Now they’ve ventured on their own and so far have four boats in the company portfolio ranging in length from 36’ to 53’. As you will see, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Today, we’ll take a look at the 435, Tomco’s second to come off the drafting table, and see what makes this such a capable cruiser.
