General Description

"TUGS" is elegant, yet simple, built for a well known retired B.C. tugboat operator whose main objective was to have "a good little seaboat with very little windage" .

On Jespersen's website ( it is noted that "TUGS" was "the result of one man's desire to have a small "workboat" sufficient for just himself to explore B.C.'s south coast. She is simple yet appropriately equipped for her purpose with a helm station inside for inclement weather and one outside for maneuvering in close quarters. With a large cockpit and ample windows, "TUGS" is ideal for someone who appreciates being close to the environment in which she travels." 

A January 1987, Pacific Yachting article by John Shinnick entitled "One Man's Boat" describes "TUGS" as a "sweetie from her pert little upturned stem to her businesslike stern. Her sheer line sweeps low, her bow sits high and saucy........everything about this boat bespeaks seaworthiness".
