Available for SaleANCIENT MARINERS36' 2012 American Tug 

"The American Tug 365 has developed a well-earned reputation over the last 22 years as the perfect cruiser for couples. As often seen on the Great Loop as cruising the Inside Passage or exploring the Bahamas, this boat is ready for whatever you ask of it." ~ American Tug 365 Brochure

Ruth and Herb, the owners of Ancient Mariners, are icons on the Maine Coast. With a combined age of over 200 years, no that is not a typo, these two mariners are inspirations to us all. With a new to them American Tug 41 heading up the coast, they are now selling this fantastic, lightly used, well equipped tug.
