Slowboat.com analyzes the Waypoint 36

The crew from Slowboat spent some time with American Tug last week and just published this article. They agree; we are on a excellent path with the new Waypoint 36.

Kevin Morris and Laura Domela came by La Conner last week and asked us great questions about our new model.  Kevin and Laura, along with Sam Landsman publish Slowboat.com a well written blog site dedicated to our Pacific Northwest coastwise cruising lifestyle.  They bring an expertise honed by many many miles of Inside Passage/Alaska cruising.

Introductory pricing at $350k, call Steve at 206-930-6139 and let’s firm up your summer plans.

It’s difficult to find a high-quality new cruising boat for a reasonable price…
