Yea my N46 was ideal when it came to going fore and aft on the outside.

Great looking boat.
Too much exterior teak for me but, that is the beauty of a Lord Nelson. Shrug
No mention of A/C
Wet head.

Still, with all that, I like the boat, a real classic.

Titan was owned by a Canadian author and re-named "Titan" in honour of his then latest book of the same name. He had moorage near mine where he kept her. Green hull at the time.
I always preferred the LNVT over the other "tugs". A more authentic look.

Too authentic IMO.
Mostly don’t like the extreme swoopy decks and all else. Hull isn’t perfect either but there’s only one anything like it. So if you like it it’s a very serious like.

Never seen one w an engine I really like. Perfect for me would be a 65hp Isuzu.

Ask previous owners. Present owners opinions are probably too biased positive.

I like them a lot though and came very close to doing some serious shopping.

I’ve always liked them. There’s enough wood there to keep me happy. I’m always adding more wood to ours, just this week I’m adding some more teak trim to the interior of the pilot house.

I own a 2000 Nordic Tug 32 and find it an excellent boat for our use in the Pacific Northwest. Many go to Alaska from here in Puget Sound, but I would prefer the 37. Yes, they are overpowered for cruising at 7-8 knots but most have good Cummins engines. Avoid those with Volvos. If side deck width is important, the NT is not for you. The stairs up into the pilothouse from the head may not have your required clearance but the salon does.

Prices for Nordic Tugs are much less in Florida and the east coast than in the northwest so some brokers are actually buying them there, trucking them west and selling at a profit.

I have little experience with LN but they are beautiful. I believe you would have more maintenance issues with the LN than a Nordic.

Much more roll and much more fuel efficiency.
