More LNVT 41's Out There Than We Knew (Tuggers Vol.62)

While Tommy Chen can't remember the exact number he knows he made two or three LNVT 41's that were sold to buyers in Japan. The 41's were built at South Coast Marine (SCM). One of the tugs was featured in the Tokyo Boat Show. Tommy said he couldn't believe how expensive it was to put a boat in the show there. Instead of being called LNVTs they were renamed to appeal more to the Japanese market. The Japanese market subsequently dried up when the Japanese government ruled that boats were no longer eligible for long term financing.
