This is a great model of Seguin tug boat. It was all handmade by strips of mahogany and teak. All built plank on frame. Look at all the amazing details on the windows and deck area. All the little pieces of wood are glued together in tremendous amount of time. The masts and the smoke stack and the lower portion of the hull are painted in the original colors. It has a shiny finish that make this model looks very beautiful. The craftsmen must have spent over a hundred hours with this.
The Seguin Tugboat was launched in Maine in 1884. Named after Seguin Island at the mouth of the Kennebec River, the Seguin at one time was our nation’s oldest operating steam powered tugboat. This highly detailed model is hand built by master craftsmen. You will be impressed by the size, quality and sheer beauty of this 19th Century tugboat.
