We have been meeting with and listening to owners of our American Tug 435’s, 395’s and 365’s in an effort to learn how we can build the very best boats possible. “Our boat owners have tremendous amounts of experience and are very sharp, they love their American Tugs” quoted Mike Schoppert, President of Tomco Marine Group. The input has helped perfect the space utilization and kept the focus on how the boats are really used.

The AT-485 will be available with a variety of salon layouts including either an “L-shaped or U-shaped” settee, a forward dinette, desk or bar area. The traditional pilothouse can have a companionway to the optional upper flybridge or “skylounge seating area”. The large aft cockpit can be accessed via a single or optional french double-door. Twin swivel chairs and a 40-inch hidden/rising LED television are standard equipment. “The owners need to be comfortable while on extended cruises, these boats will be covering a lot of miles” said Steve Scruggs, sales manager at Tomco Marine Group.
