2006 American Tug 41



Hudson, Wisconsin, United States
  • 2 Staterooms
  • 2 Heads
  • 1 Engines

"The 41 is a big, beamy, muscular vessel that was my first impression upon getting close to her. Her faux-carvel-planked bow seemed enormous and lofty, mostly due to a one-piece deck molding that adds to both gunwale height and stem-to-stern stature. Wide chine flats swept back from a straight, slightly raked stem, promising the sort of transverse stability that typifies the coastal-cruising hulls of Lynn Senour." ~ Power and Motoryacht Review of the American Tug 41

This Great Lakes gem, Antares Star, is currently on her returning leg of the Great Loop and ready for her next adventure. Well maintained, super clean and cruise ready...she won't be available for very long. Sellers acquired vessel out of Racine, WI in 2013 when she had only 1,460 hours. Over the next 11 years she was actively cruised throughout the Great Lakes Region and Great Loop. Vessel originally ordered and spec’d for East Coast dealer to show off at boat shows.

If the Great Loop, cruising the ICW, Great Lakes, or the Bahamas are in your future boating plans, this is the vessel for you!

Showings available by appointment to vetted buyers.

Salon / Galley

The first impression of Antares Star is the quality of the interior. As you step into the salon from the aft cockpit, you are immediately impressed by the textures of new carpet, soft Ultra Leather and beautiful woodwork.

The salon features large windows which flood the interior with light. You can see forward past the galley to the raised pilothouse, it is this open feel that makes the interior great for entertaining. An L-shape settee is to starboard, which easily converts to a large double berth. On the port side aft is a chair that is perfect for reading.

On the port side forward of chair is a U-shaped galley with a sizeable island ideal for preparing family meals or entertaining. The moulded Granicote counter has a deep double sink, moulded backsplash and fiddles for easy maintenance. A three burner Force Ten stainless LPG stove and oven are mounted on the forward counter, complemented by a Sharp microwave oven. A large Nova Kool refrigerator & freezer is near centerline.
