Used boats can offer an economical alternative to having a new boat built from
scratch. That applies to used commercial boats as well as used powerboats and
sailboats. While a new boat can run in the millions, many used vessels appear in
boat classifieds for several hundred thousand dollars.
Used commercial vessels come in all varieties. There are steel hulls, fiberglass
hulls, and wood hulls. There are single engine boats and twin engine boats. If you're
curious to see what kind of prices boats fetch on the used markets, visit the page for
tugboats for sale at maritimesales.com. Surplus military vessels are attractive to
commercial boat operators because they are built to high standards.
Used boats form a big part of the commercial "boat for sale" market. Just the same, there's always
new lives for used commercial vessels. The Donal G McAllister, shown above with the hospital
ship USNS Comfort, started her career as the Navy tug Antigo, YTB 792. She was built in 1970
by the Marinette Marine Corporation for the government, who sold her in 2000. Purchased by
McAllister Towing and Transportation, her Fairbanks Morse 10 cylinder engine was replaced with
an EMD 16-645-E5 turbocharged diesel. The steel tug measures 243 gross tons, with a length of
102.3 feet, beam of 29 feet, and depth of 16.3 feet. Source: tugboatinformation.com
