American Tug is displaying its 395 Esmeralde at the Newport show this week, the first show since the Kadey-Krogen Group bought American Tug in May.

The 395 is one of American Tug’s most popular models, available in a one- or two-cabin configuration with one head. Standard power is a single 380-hp Cummins diesel, producing a top speed of about 14 knots and a range of about 1,000 nm at a displacement speed of about 7.5 knots. An optional 550-hp Cummins boosts the top speed to more than 18 knots.

Based in LaConner, Washington, just above Seattle, American Tug was started in 1999. They have delivered more than 250 cruising boats since then; their fleet now has five models from 36 to 48 feet.

The 395 is made for safe, comfortable cruising and living aboard for an owner-operator. It is ready for long voyages, up the Inside Passage to Alaska, the Great Loop, or way Down East to the far reaches of Maine, or beyond.

The side decks have high railings, so moving around the boat is easy, whether for handling lines at a dock or a lock or picking up a mooring. And the interior volume simply provides lots of space for everyday living.

The standard layout includes an L-shaped settee and lounge chair in the salon, and an L-shaped galley with twin sinks, solid-surface counter tops and lots of storage. Owners have a choice of a propane or electric stove and oven. Up two steps, the classic pilothouse includes a seat at the helm, another large seat on the port side, and doors on each side to access the side decks.

The single-cabin version has a large owner’s stateroom in the bow with a queen-sized walkaround bed and lots of storage space. There’s also a large head with a stall shower. In the two-cabin version, the master is slightly smaller and the second cabin on the starboard side has a larger bunk below and a smaller one above.

Standard equipment includes a Northern Lights generator, bow and stern thrusters, a stern davit, and a choice of diesel heat or AC and reverse-cycle heat. You can order the 395 with or without a flybridge.
