Smile Found my trawler

I have finally made the transition from sail to power. Just closed on a 2002 Nordic Tug 32. She is located in Florida and Come April I will be moving her to Florida. Looking forward to life at 9 kntís.

Nice boat and welcome aboard. You'll be moving her from FL to FL. Actually with our state that can be a long move. Care to disclose from where to where?

My mistake. It’s from Melbourn FL to Groton, Ct via Fort Lauderdale. I know I’m going south to to go north but I need to get the rug and cushions replaced. So, Lauderdale first and then CT.

That would be about 4 kts faster than you are used to.

Just kidding

That's a great looking Nordic. My wife loves and wants a 32 Nordic.

Congratulations, good looking boat. I like the top over the cockpit. What motor does she have?

Toot toot congratulations!


To be a seaworthy fine boat, you will certainly enjoy NT. In my opinion, you can save a lot of fuel if you have enough 7kn speed.

I agree there. At 32ft, 9 knots is some way above her hull speed. So although she could do that, fuel consumption would probably be somewhere in the vicinity of double what it is at 7kn, as NBS above points out.

Lovely boat though. You will have a great time with her. As someone who also came from sail to power, while I loved sailing, as one gets older and less subtle, and the family get larger, and even grandchildren come along - power is good - very good.

Good boat. But wished they had railings and wide decks wrapping around the whole boat.

"wide Decks wrapping around the entire boat." another viewing angle, wide Living space, more space and if hell out of the high seas, it is more stability buoynce if the deck is pressed underwater.

When you have side doors, they will replace the walk around and make the single hands so easy.

Mark, I think NBS meant that with pilot doors both sides, walk-around decks are less important, and the positive trade-off is not only increased interior volume, but that volume translates into more buoyancy laterally if the side decks are submerged in foul weather. That is, contributes to a better self-righting moment.

Thanks. She has a 220 HP Cummings 6BT repowered in 2007.

I am looking forward to finding the right RPM/KPH/GPH for me. But you are right about moving from sail to power. At 72 my ocean crossing days are over. Time to sit back and enjoy the ride but I will miss the thrill of the boat healing to a breeze and taking off.

Congrats! Nordic was in our top three before we found our AT, love those Nordics and that blue hull is beautiful!
Wait, you're a Florida resident but moving the boat to Groton...?
