The Bufflehead 22 presents as a classic tug, with raised pilothouse and portholes in the salon and pilothouse that befit the genre. The salon features a stand-up head, two twins and a galley in the wheelhouse. The aft deck (the work deck on a commercial tug) is big enough for a pair of chairs, and a small shore boat or kayaks can be lifted on to the cabin top with the derrick.
One of the most popular builder alterations is to raise the fore deck to the height of the railings, creating additional space below in which bunks or another cabin can be designed. The hull, fabricated in steel, fiberglass or wood, is sturdy in all seas, and the boat is only 22 feet in length so it can be powered by a small, super-efficient diesel engine.
