34 AMERICAN TUG MAIN DESCRIPTION
Mascot is a 34 American Tug (Hull #45) built in LaConner, Washington by the Tomco Marine Group. This comfortable trawler debuted in 2001 to critical acclaim. She is described by the Powerboat Guide as a “sought-after coastal cruiser loaded with practical features.”
The knowledgeable and experienced owners of Mascot have spent the last few years cruising the Bahamas during the winter months. She is very well maintained, and is truly turn-key.
Mascot has a full efficient single-engine and cruises comfortably at 7.5 knots @ 1500 RPM, while burning 2.5 GPH, with a cruising range of approximately 1000 nautical miles. The bow thruster aids in docking.
If the Great Loop, cruising the ICW, Great Lakes, or the Bahama Islands is in your future boating plans, this is the vessel for you. The word “mascot” originates from the French term “mascotte” which means “lucky charm”. Is it time to make Mascot your lucky charm?
34 AMERICAN TUG WALK THROUGH
Mascot can be boarded by the transom door from the swim platform, or from the molded steps from the side decks. The salon on Mascot is accessible via the cockpit door. The L-shape galley is to starboard across from the salon settee with a hi-low table. The raised pilothouse is forward, with the helm to starboard. There are bench seats and doors both port and starboard. The stateroom and head are forward, with stairs to port.
34 AMERICAN TUG HULL, COCKPIT AND DECK
The hull on Mascot is dark green, and features covered stainless steel hull guards. The fiberglass swim platform has a stainless steel swim ladder and a large transom door. The decks are non-skid; molded steps lead from the cockpit to the side decks. The deck has 316 stainless steel rails and cleats.
All of the decks are Nida-Core Structural Honeycomb which is high-strength, low-weight, and the most resilient core available. Stress cracks do not travel, but remain localized for easy repair.
The cockpit features: a built-in storage box to starboard, a stainless steel ladder to the upper deck to port, lazarette access, a cockpit shower, courtesy lights, and a door with an opening window into the salon. The “Beware of Dog” sticker on the window is meant to be a theft deterrent, -the current owners have only owned this vessel as a “mascot”.
Mascot has a custom designed stainless steel dinghy davit system which keeps the swim platform, cockpit, and upper deck free, while providing easy access to the tender. The curved lines do not distract from the overall design of the vessel. It has generated a great deal of attention since the current owner installed it; the most common question is: “Where can I get one?”
The large upper deck is completely surrounded by railings and provides an excellent outdoor space for sunrise coffee or sunset cocktails. The bimini top, with tan colored Sunbrella canvas was installed in 9/2017, provides shade when needed; it includes a rear curtain and one side curtain that can be used on either side for additional sun protection. A clever upper deck box is storage on one side, and a Magic Chef beverage refrigerator on the other. The radar mast, with trumpet horn, gives Mascot a 14’ 9” bridge clearance when the antenna is down, and a 19’ bridge clearance when the antenna is up. The solar panel is mounted in front of the radar mast.
The high bulwarks allow for safe movement around the deck of Mascot. There is a large storage box mounted on the foredeck. The ground tackle includes: a 44-lb Claw Anchor with 275' chain, and a Lofrans Tigress TG 003952 anchor windlass with foot controls. There is also a raw water wash-down.
34 AMERICAN TUG ACCOMMODATIONS
The interior of Mascot is well designed to be bright and airy with plenty of headroom. The drop window on the door, as well as large opening screened windows to port and starboard and aft over the sink provide natural ventilation. The sole was replaced in 2015 with “floating” cork flooring over a rubber base. There is access in the salon sole to a huge storage area which is perfect for long term provisioning, and also provides tank access. The windows have dual function pleated shades that can diffuse the light or be room darkening. All of the lighting on Mascot has been upgraded to LED.
The L-shaped galley is to starboard and features: an L-shaped molded fiberglass solid surface countertop, double molded-in corner sinks, a 3 burner Force 10 electric stove and oven with a built in back splash cover, a Nova Kool refrigerator/freezer with a vent added in the outside wall, a Sharp Carousel microwave oven, a Black & Decker toaster oven, a Black & Decker coffee maker, and a Sunbeam electric tea kettle. An Insignia “smart” flat-screen TV is mounted over the sinks for convenient viewing from the settee.
Mascot is outfitted with a “whole-house” water filtration system, with an additional water filter under the galley sink. The owners routinely drink the tap water, and do not have to hook up an exterior filter system.
There is abundant galley storage including: a pot drawer under the stove, an L-shaped cabinet under the sink with a double hinged door for full access, a cabinet next to the refrigerator with a teak spice rack/paper towel holder mounted on the front, an under counter cabinet next to the oven with an L-shaped shelf, a second under counter cabinet on the other side of the oven, and three drawers (one with two levels).
The L-shaped salon settee on Mascot is to port, across from the galley. The teak table swivels to allow easy access to the settee seating. It converts to a double berth by lowering the hydraulic hi-low table and sliding the bench seat out while dropping the built-in support leg. The back cushion of the bench seat removes to become the mattress fill-in. If you have no plans to use the convertible berth, the area behind the back cushion provides even more storage space.
There is additional storage in drawers beneath the settee, and in the large cabinet aft of the settee. That cabinet also has an electrical outlet inside, and the dinghy davit control switch. Additional features include: an individually controlled electric heater mounted beneath the large cabinet, teak magazine racks, an overhead rod holder, a stainless steel overhead hand hold, five LED overhead lights, a reading light, and an added electrical outlet. The invertor is located beneath the side seat of the settee. A fan was added to the front of the cabinet for cooling.
The salon settee and the pilothouse bench seats were reupholstered in February 2021.
The pilothouse on Mascot is three steps up from the salon. The steps and the sole of the pilothouse, as well as the steps down to the stateroom, are cork with maple strips, all installed in 2015. The Polar Bay control for the 10000 BTU reverse cycle AC/Heat unit for the salon and galley is on the steps. The three pane windshield provides good sightlines and features intermittent stainless steel wipers arms and blades (replaced January 2021) and defoggers. There are two side doors with drop down windows as well as screened windows on both sides, which provide natural ventilation. The skylight over the steps from the salon was replaced with glass in 2020.
The helm features a stainless and teak steering wheel. The two bench seats have stainless steel foot rests, and were reupholstered in February 2021. The Captain’s bench is sliding.
The Formica helm has a chart table with drawer; there is additional storage in drawers under the bench seats, and in the teak steps at the doors. There are two LED overhead lights, white courtesy floor and step lights, reading lights, and red lights over the helm. An electrical outlet was added to the helm station. The tank systems monitor on the helm station is not operational, but all of the tanks have sight gauges.
The pilothouse sole has two access panels for entry into the engine room, one port and one starboard. Both stainless steel ladders into the engine room are easily removed to provide clearance while working.
The stateroom on Mascot is four steps down from the pilothouse to port. The companionway features: two storage cabinets, a stainless steel grab bar, a portlight, and a door into the head.
The single stateroom on Mascot has a queen-sized island berth with a Portland custom mattress and mattress pad installed in 2015. The sole is sculpted neutral carpeting also installed in 2015. Storage is available in the four drawers under the berth, the full length cabinets on both sides of the berth with teak fold-up doors, the two night tables, the lighted cedar lined hanging locker to starboard, and the lighted cabinet to port. There is additional provisioning storage under the mattress.
There are two portlights, two LED overhead lights, two reading lights, and courtesy lights. Light controls are in the companionway, and next to the berth. The Polar Bay control for the 16000 BTU reverse cycle AC/Heat unit for the stateroom and pilothouse is in the stateroom. An individually controlled electric heater is mounted beneath the large cabinet to port. Access to the anchor locker is behind the berth. An Insignia “smart” flat-screen TV is to starboard. There is a CO detector, and an overhead hatch with removable screen. A private door leads directly from the stateroom into the head.
The ensuite head on Mascot has a teak and holly sole. There is a full sized shower with a mounted/hand-held shower head, a tempered glass door, one LED overhead light, and portlight. The vanity features: a two-light fixture, a large mirror, a molded fiberglass solid surface countertop with a molded-in sink, three self-closing drawers, and a double cabinet.
