Towboats like the TAURUS tugboat were a familiar sight in every American harbor and navigable tidal flat at the turn of the century. Graceful yet functional, they pulled large liners and pushed heavy barges with ease. During the 1930’s steam engines lost ground to Diesel propulsion, and by the 1960’s the steam units were all but gone. No longer used, a few steam tugs survive today as museum relics.

This is museum grade model of the Taurus tugboat  for your maritime collection. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plans. In addition, we selected finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we used the plank-on-frame construction method to build the model to look exact of the actual ship.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. The Taurus model sit on a solid wood base and she is ready to display or convert to Radio Control. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
