Lynn Senour's design has captured the overall look of the classic tugboat, and the construction used by Nordic Tugs has proven to be as rugged and substantial as the boat's look implies.
The hand-laid fiberglass hull is available in custom colors, with deep red, blue and green often seen on these boats. Fiberglass stringers provide the backbone of the substantial hull.
An ivory-toned superstructure sets the Nordic Tug 32 apart from the polar white of other vessels, and gives it a warm inviting look. One inch stainless steel tubing is used for rails, and teak handrails are plentiful for secure passage around the boat.
A full keel protects the prop under water, and many Nordic Tug 32's were ordered with the now-standard bow thruster.
Early models feature 100 to 120 hp diesels, but newer 32s are delivered with 220 hp Cummins. Cruise speeds can be around 7 to 8 knots (with enviable fuel consumption of about 1 gallon per hour), and the 220 hp Cummins can push the boat to 15 knots.
Built in Washington, these are not inexpensive boats — and used models have retained a high resale value. It would certainly be possible to build a lesser boat, but Nordic Tug is following the path of quality. Satisfied owners gather at various Nordic Tug owners' rendezvous and share their cruising stories and adventures through various newsletters.
Through effective marketing and building a quality product, Nordic Tugs has developed a market for cruising tugboats, offering an alternative to traditional trawlers, and even sailboats, as many Nordic Tug buyers are ex-sailboat owners. Whatever their motive, when buyers purchase a Nordic Tug, they are ensured of getting a unique vessel — instantly recognizable as one of that universally understood breed, the tugboat.
