The American Tug 485 was originally designed off of the success of her sister model, the 435. They both are equipped with a hard-chine hull, a popular feature among owners, as well as a full fiberglass hull below the waterline. Above the waterline, the 485 has a foam core that has been vacuum-bagged for extra strength, durability, and insulation.
Powered with a single Cummins QSC8.3 550 HP engine, the American Tug 485 is fuel efficient for long-distance voyages. At a speed of 8 knots, the 485 can cruise 1,440 nautical miles or if there is a need to get to your destination more quickly, she can cruise at 14 knots for a range of 400 nautical miles.
The interior of the American Tug is clasically beautiful with plank-style wood floors and dark granite countertops. Large windows line both port and starboard sides of the salon and the galley is fully equipped with appliances and extra storage to meet all of the demands of the cruising enthusiast.
The pilothouse on the American Tug 485 is just a few steps from the salon and is equipped with a settee and a dedicated helm chair. Electronics can be customized by the owner and is elegantly integated into the cabinetry. Access to both side decks is present through Diamond-Seaglaze doors that also provide great visibility.
There are two staterooms on board the 485, each with their own en suite head. The master cabin is placed amidships and stretches the full beam of the boat. There is a queen-sized, walk-around berth with nightstands on each side as well as additional storage. The guest cabin is placed forward and is equipped with a larger lower bunk and a smaller upper bunk.
American Tugs also offers a 10-year warranty that covers workmanship and blisters. The Tomco factory goes through painstaking quality control efforts and is sea trialed by the team.
