Tug Boats for sale

   Tug boats are the unsung powerhouses of the boating world, There are two main reasons why a tug boat will be bought:

   Firstly they are good reliable and strong workboats, ideal for commercial work in most areas. A good working tug can command a good price because of its capabilities.

   Secondly, with work and imagination they can become a very nice comfortable liveaboard houseboat, retaining the character of a tug boat in shape whilst providing surprisingly comfortable living accommodation.

   There are two main choices when using a tug boat as a houseboat. The first is to keep the engine, and update the crews quarters as the accommodation, and maybe build a further structure above deck. This can create a comfortable living area, and obviously you retain the ability to move the tug boat under its own power.

   The second choice, and one that opens up an amazing living space whilst retaining the outer character, is to remove the engines from the tug boat completely and convert to a static houseboat. Removing engines, gearboxes and tanks from a tug boat can create an almost cavernous space to create accommodation of character, and if a larger tug boat even on two levels. This is obviously hard work and needs to be done properly, however at the end of it your tug boat could provide the large character home you dream of.
