Description

The Brooklyn was built in 1910 and owned by the New York Dock Co. Steam powered all her career she was inauspiciously sold for scrap in 1960. 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 guards and the use of single posts instead of H-bitts. Railroad tugs were characterized by long houses because there was no need of towing space aft.
Our Brooklyn tugboat model is designed to give you the salty appearance of the original boat. The model is handcrafted at museum quality from high-grade woods such as mahogany, teak, and other exotic woods. The hull is constructed using a plank on frame method, each strip of exotic wood are carefully joined together to form a smooth hull. This model is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen. We built our models according to scale through original plans, pictures, and drawings. We absolutely use no plastic parts, only the highest quality wood, and metal parts. This model is carefully packed with two thick layers of Styrofoam for a damaged free shipping purpose.
