Choose YOUR Tug From One of Our 4 Sets of Mini Tugboat Plans!
There are four separate models of our mini tugboat plans to choose from. These boats have all been designed for the first time boat builder. There are no exotic or hard-to-find products or expensive materials used on our boats. They are made of plywood with fiberglass cloth and resin. There are no frames or molds needed, nor any lofting. They can be built in a minimal amount of time.
Each of our tugboats are trailerable. The simple plans for trailer conversions to fit your boat are included in each set of plans.
Our boat plans come with complete instructions on outfitting them with an electric motor or a gasoline powered outboard. Some of the builders in the past have designed their own diesel powered engines and several have also installed inboard engines.
As Berk said of these boats, "IT'S THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE IN PUBLIC WITHOUT GETTING ARRESTED!"
The above picture is our "Cranberry", which is our smallest boat, the Micro-9. This boat belongs to the Eastman family and is kept in Oceanside Harbor, Oceanside, California, as the tender to the family's Cape Codder.
This is an example of our Perfect 10 and a Candu Junior, both built by Berkeley Eastman, showing the trailers, also.
This photo is of our Candu E-Z, which also happens to be our most popular tugboat to date! This beauty is owned by Roger Balling and is shown again on our Candu E-Z page.
