CLASSIC HARBOR
TUG BROOKLYN
NEW LAUNCHING

 
 

PRICE $300.00 plus $25.00 shipping and handling to 48 contiguous States. 

 

 
 
Presented is our newest offering which more than ever achieves the scratch built museum quality only a master model maker can attain. The model is built using the much desired plank on bulkhead method one plank at a time, and then finished in the vessel's original colors with varnished deck, flat black hull and red bottom paint. The deck is detailed in hand laid planking which looks like teak. All the stanchions and search light are custom made in brass, and exactly duplicate what was used on the real vessels of that era. Special pains were taken with this project to fully replicate the details of the original BROOKLYN. 
 
This is a near museum quality model, at an unrealistically low price. If you've been browsing on the internet, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall. You can spend a lot more money for no better a model than this one, or others is our line, and get the same satisfaction.  
 
DIMENSIONS: 25" L x 6" W x 15"H                    
WEIGHT: 4 Lbs
 

 
DETAILING INCLUDES:
  • American ensign finished on both sides
  • Hand-woven fenders
  • Turned brass stanchions with metal life lines
  • Lifeboat with fitted canvas cover
  • Eight wood fire buckets
  • Hand laid wood decks
  • Wood and metal rung ladders
  • Highly detailed resin doors with "dogs"
  • moulded vents and smoke stack
  • Full rigging
  • Coiled rope towing lines
  • And more
 
If you are one of many who admire the pugnacious sprit of tug boats then this completed model is the finest you will find at any price. 
 
In addition to the Tug BROOKLYN in motor vessels, we offer a Chris Craft Barrel Back and Utility, the Garwood Speedster, the famous 1908 DIXIE II championship speedboat, a classic 1920 motor yacht, a 1926 raised deck cabin cruiser, the Dreamboat, and a NEW New England Lobster Boat. In sailboats we have the Crosby cat, the Marshall 18, and Beetle cats, two different sizes of the Schooner Bluenose, the NEW Gertrude L. Thebaud, a Friendship sloop, Schooners Adventuress, America, Amistad in two sizes, the much admired Herreshoff's 12.5  "S" boats, and New York 30, the Schooner Adventuress, J Class Rainbow, Endeavour, Enterprise, Shamrock, each as full models or half hulls, and  also the three masted lumber Schooner WAWONA and Sparkman & Stephen's ocean racer Dorade, yawl Odyssey, and Concordia yawl.  Please tell us what other boats you'd like to see at auction.

HISTORY: The standard American harbor tug was developed around the end of the Civil War and is characterized by a narrow hull that is also round-bilged and deep. Its pilot house sits forward of a single stack and high above the deck to permit the operator to see around large loads. Tugs have been called "housings for engines" because their work, whether it's maneuvering ships around berths or towing heavily laden barges upriver, requires large, powerful engines. 
 
Built in 1910, the harbor tug Brooklyn was designed and built by William Cramp and Sons Ship and Engine Building Company at Philadelphia, PA, in 1910. She was owned by the New York Dock Co. for lease to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
 
She was one of many railroad tugs, designed to transfer railroad cars from one side of New York to the other on barges known as car floats. Railroad tugs almost always towed barges alongside, with one car floating on each side, hence the heavy guard strakes along their sides. Railroad tugs were characterized by long houses because there was no need of a towing machine aft.
 
Built of steel, it was typical of the large harbor tugs found in major American ports at the time. The Brooklyn measured 105 feet long overall, with a 24 foot molded beam and 15 feet 1 inch depth.
