The Travels of Tug 44

Livet - Dutch Canal Freighter

This is a genuine canal freighter, brought over from Holland and converted to a live-aboard trawler.

I saw her about 6-7 years ago in Newark Bay making about 4-5 knots, but she hasn't moved since then. She is berthed behind a stoneyard on the upper Hackensack River.

It's nice to have acres of living space and a raised pilothouse. And that's one huge rudder!
