Classic Tugboat

Classic Tugboat
Bridget 30

The Bridget 30 Tugboat is ideal as a steamboat, as the center of the boat may be devoted to the boiler and engine, leaving  both the forward and after cabins as living accommodations.  She sleeps four for the week or extended cruising.  A good mover and seaworthy in coastal waters.  A boat that is perfect  for the enthusiastic steam boater or as a modest sized yacht with the diesel placed beneath the pilothouse; out of the way, but handy to service.  Swimming ladder, railings, and some selected options make her a boat for serious consideration.  Priced from $144,950.

Classic Tugboat
Firefly 33

The Firefly 33 was developed from her smaller sister ship, the Firefly 30 which, being built of steel is now only available on special order.  The Firefly 33 has had the advantage of incorporating many of the fine and tested features of the earlier boat and has been developed into a fine cruising vessel with the look of a real tugboat.  She can sleep up to eight, but more conveniently five with fifth person on the pilot's berth.  The saloon is a full ten by ten feet  that contains the galley, dining, and living areas.  There is room to add many creature comforts.    The Firefly 33 is livable for cruising or as a home.  A classic vessel that gathers praise and admiration.

The Firefly 33 pilothouse is a complete room in itself.  Its spacious windows provide a 360 degree view of the passing scene.  There is a large instrument and helm console forward with the pilot's berth across the after end.  Three persons can sit here comfortably.  The forward owner's cabin has a complete water closet with shower, enclosed head, several hanging lockers, drawer space, and large Vee berths.  Aft there is a large deck area for sitting with access to the swimming platform and ladder.  There is a large lazarette beneath this deck with three large watertight hatches for access to the stored items.  The boat is large enough to allow for various custom layouts, one of which will exactly suit your long term cruising needs.  We look forward to working with you to develop your dreamboat.  Photographs, drawings, videos and specifications are available for study in greater detail.  The Firefly 33 is priced from $299,000. and is equipped with a selection of diesel engine of various horsepower and manufacturers.
