Built around the turn of the 20th century and delivered to The Texas Company, the Texaco Latin American Tugboat was one “tough tug” with a history of not only hard work, but valiant victories and selfless service.
On June 16, 1966, two fuel tankers collided, and the Latin American provided assistance alongside the Esso Vermont tugboat. Within minutes, an explosion ignited the flammable gas, causing flames to engulf the ships and consume the lives of many crewmen. The Latin American remained on the job before unfortunately meeting her demise.
Round 2's detailed tribute to the Latin American doubles as a coin bank. With custom Texaco graphics, a rotating propeller, and a stand, this model comes with everything needed to make a statement from the shelf.
