Looking to buy a Nordic Tug 42 FB

After years of equivocating between buying a mid-40s Selene and a NT 42, we've finally decided on a NT 42 FB. Now comes the hard part --> finding the darn boat.

The boat is going to be kept in the Salish Sea area, so a current location on the West Coast is ideal. However, I know that there aren't alot of these out there and the ones that are on the market don't always check all of our boxes. I've learned that shipping this boat from Miami to Victoria (via the canal) will cost approximately $26k (actually, less than I thought), so we're certainly open to boats located on the other coast if they're currently outfitted to our liking.

If any one out there has plan to sell their NT, or has a friend who is considering a sale, please give me a holler.

Cheers.

If I recall, the NT42 had a layout change at some point. Are you looking for the earlier or later layout?

Thanks for wondering. I'm not an avid poster here, but I am a loyal reader and I'm loving you loving your boat.

My understanding is that earlier models of the NT 42 had a stairway going down to the "cabin level" from the pilot house starboard of the helm. I haven't been on one of these, and I think that this layout was discontinued around 2004 or so. Later in the mid-2000s, access to the cabin was from a stairway in the salon. I am looking for this later model.

If you know one, send her my way please!

Yes, the later layout I think was an improvement. Not many on the market that I can see. Nice one in Alaska right now. That would make a nice trip back home. :-)
