Drew Foss and Joe

Hercules

At PNWtugboats.com we offer handcrafted replicas of tugboats and fishing boats of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
Our boats are built using beautiful, luxurious hardwoods, combined in complimenting and contrasting ways, using fine woodworking techniques rather than traditional model building.
We build these boats carefully, taking the time necessary to ensure that each boat meets our high standards.
These techniques result in beautiful boats, which are suitable for display.
Each boat is offered in a limited edition, numbered and signed by the artist.
Satisfaction guaranteed.


We are currently offering four tug boats, two fishing boats and a boom boat.

We ship UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE PRIORITY MAIL.
Please allow 2 to 3 days for delivery in the western half of the U.S. and 3 to 4 days for delivery in the eastern half of the U.S.
