Have you dreamed of riding the river as a tug boat captain? Here is your chance with Dumas's version of the American Beauty, built by St. Louis Ships for Argi-Trans Services. This tug measures a whopping 170' in length with a beam of 45' and requires 9' of water when fully loadeded with fuel. Powered with twin 2500 h.p. diesel engines turning two 8' diameter propellers, she typically moves a tow of 20-25 barges each being approximately 200' L x 35' W, moving at speeds of 4 to 9 miles per hour. The Dumas version of the American Beauty starts off with an ABS plastic hull and construction of the superstructure is accomplished through the use of precisely die-cut birch and mahogany plywoods.
To power your Beauty, sold separately, Dumas recommends two Dumas #2004 or #2005 electric motors and running hardware kit #2339, The running hardware is authentic in every detail right down to the twin kort nozzles.
