Nordic Tugs is well known for its over-built hulls and decks. This is not a light boat! 34,000 to 35,000 lbs loaded. With its hard chines and deep forefoot design it's a great sea boat. Plus with the Wesmar stabilizers it's a joy to run in any kind of weather.

Boarding the Tug is very easy through the larger transom door. The aft cockpit is large with plenty of storage in the lazarette. A custom cockpit cover is included which makes the cockpit more useable in both warm and cool weather.

Moving into the saloon you find a very comfortable chair on the port side with the convertible dinette with high/low table on the starboard side. The U-shaped galley forward on the port side has plenty of standard storage plus a custom overhead cabinet with racks for wine glasses. The Force 10 stove with oven, the Nova-Kool refrigerator freezer and the Corian counter tops contribute to a very functional galley. Also included is a state-of-the-art refrigerator control system.

Moving forward near centerline is the stairs and companionway to the two staterooms and the Navigation station including electrical panels. The guest state room is to port and includes a double berth that can be changed to single berth or a bench seat. There is plenty of storage plus an additional refrigerator under the hanging locker. The guest head is on the starboard side moving forward and includes a shower.

Moving into the Master stateroom you immediately notice the queen centerline berth. There is storage under the berth plus forward overhead cabinets and hanging lockers port and starboard. Moving to the port side and aft you find the master head. Very spacious and a large shower attached.

Going back the saloon you find a stair case to the pilothouse. Along with the wide bench seat with custom table there is also a single seat next to the helm station. Two sliding doors are provided to access the foredeck.

From the aft cockpit the is a substantial ladder to the upper deck and dinghy storage area. A Pacific Fabricators deck crane is provided to raise and lower the new dinghy.

Broker's Comments

The Nordic Tugs 42 has been a standard in the industry for its great hull design, interiors and very importantly -- resale. This extraordinarily clean and shipshape vessel has had many additions to its equipment over the last two years including all new Garmin electronics, New AB Lammina RIB dinghy, new Dyno and Interstate batteries and the addition of a Village Marine watermaker. Another small addition is the canvas with stainless steel framed cockpit cover.

For ease of handling there are bow and stern Side-Power thruster's. With the thruster's is a separate remote control hand held, so that both units can be operated from anywhere on the vessel. And for a really comfortable ride in just about any sea condition it has Wesmar hydraulic stabilizers.

Many other custom features include upgraded interior woodwork, trash compactor, Espar hydronic heat, ice maker, Reverso oil changing system, Corian counter tops and a Bose sound system.

This vessel has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Located at our docks on Lake Union, Seattle.
