Theodore Tugboat Airbnb experience in Hamilton sells out in seconds

If you were one of two groups of people lucky enough to snag one of Airbnb’s extremely limited slots for a rare stay aboard Hamilton’s Theodore tug, you must have the fastest punching fingers on the planet.

Unsurprisingly, it only took seconds for the two individual overnight stays – which were priced at just $22 for the night and included a cruise around Hamilton Harbour, meals provided by local restaurants, a movie night at the bow of the boat and a comfortable sleep. accommodation for up to 5 people – for sale.

The chance to stay aboard the life-size replica of the iconic TV tug took the internet by storm, with no doubt thousands upon thousands from Hamilton and far beyond hopping on Airbnb on Monday afternoon for try their luck in the competition, first come first-serve the opportunity.

Hamilton became home to Theodore Tugboat in July 2021 after a decades-long residence in Halifax when it was purchased by shipping industrialist Blair McKeil.

This is the first time that the tug has been made available to the public for overnight stays. So far, there have been no announcements about other sleeping options on board.
