Dark Side is a 2002 American Tug 34 built in LaConner, Washington by the Tomco Marine Group (now owned by The Kadey-Krogen Group). This comfortable trawler debuted in 2001 to critical acclaim. She is described by the Powerboat Guide as a sought-after coastal cruiser loaded with practical features. The previous owners of Dark Side completed America's Great Loop in 2023. She is very well maintained, and is truly turn-key and cruise-ready. She has a full efficient single-engine and cruises comfortably at 7.5 knots @ 1500 RPM, while burning 2.5 GPH, with a cruising range of approximately 1000 nautical miles.

If the Great Loop, cruising the ICW, Great Lakes, or the Bahamas is in your future boating plans, this is the vessel for you!

Great Loop Ready!

Full Details

Salon / Galley

The main salon is accessed from the rear cockpit through the heavy duty door amidships. The cabin is light and airy and large windows provide panoramic view and plenty of natural light and ventilation. To port there is a luxurious, L-shaped, Ultra-Leather sofa which converts to a double berth and a beautiful teak up/down table. The full galley is to starboard and features elegant solid surface countertops with 2 large basins aft, a stainless steel three burner stove with oven center and microwave and ac/dc refrigerator/freezer forward. There is plenty of storage in beautiful wooden cabinets and lockers.


The pilothouse is forward up three steps from the Salon. Large windows provide excellent visibility. There is a large comfortable bench to port and another adjustable bench at the helm to starboard. The helm is well designed with full engine controls, gauges, electronics displays and a large wheel. Heavy duty doors to port and starboard open full to improve visibility and access to side and foredecks and large mid cleat.

Forward Cabin / Master Suite

The Master cabin is forward and features a large double walkaround berth with cabinetry on each side of the berth and large hanging lockers aft of those. There is a separate entrance to the head. 2 opening ports and over head hatch provide natural light and ventilation. Reading lights, ceiling lights and courtesy lights. Great storage.


The head is down three steps from pilot house just before the forward cabin on the starboard side. There is a LARGE full-size shower, a Vacuu-Flush toilet and solid surface counter with small basin above teak cabinetry. The holding tank is located in its own compartment below the head sole. Good storage. Maple & sapele wood floor.

Hull / Decks

On the foredeck there is an oversized Bruce anchor with a powerful Loufrans 1200 watt windless. She has a nice plumb bow with a long waterline that allows for greater speed than other tugs/trawlers of her size. She has high bow rails for security on deck. She has plenty of storage and room for a couple lounge chairs in the rear cockpit area. The large sundeck on roof is accessed by rear cockpit ladder and provides ample room for patio furniture, lounge chairs, storage, paddleboard/kayak racks, Starlink and/or solar panels.
