I have a NT 39 that I built in 2015. I love it. They're built like a tank, well engineered and aside for the sight line looking aft from the helm I wouldn't change a thing. I fixed that by adding back-up cameras. If you like the looks and I do you won't be sorry if you buy one. They are terrific boats

hey Breezin, I have had the hots for a Nordic Tug ever since I saw the first 26 footer in the early 1980s. When I decided to make the switch from sail to power- from a vintage Tartan 27, wife and I looked at a number of trawlers, mostly Taiwan tubs of one kind or another. I didn't like the teak decks, prone to leaks and saturation, and exterior teak, added maintenance. I never mentioned Nordic Tugs because I thought she might choke at the price- several digits more than we had been considering. We found one here on Lake Erie, a 32, and she fell in love. I didn't mention my long time love for the boat at first but finally fessed up. We bought it in 2016 and have had it out in everything that Lake Erie can throw at us and we're thrilled with the boat over and over. Planning to loop it in 2020.

Jhiller and Jonboy, you should add an avatar picture of your boats. I love seeing other Nordics, so I can see what kind of up grades I can do to ours.

Breezin, good luck with the purchase contract. Hope all goes well. We have owned 2 NTs, 1st a 1996 26', and now a 2011 34'. A little over 2,000 engine hours and no major issues on the 34. Let me know which hull# you buy, as I keep track of the Nordic Tug Fleet at "nordictugowners.com"

Congrats Breezin!
Welcome to the family of Nordic Tug owners. We bought our (new to us) 2002 NT 37 in 2016. We have done extensive travelling on her especially last summer. We too sailed for several years prior to "making the switch". If your Tug has a Cummins engine (great engine by the way) check out sbmar.com for a wealth of free info. Make sure that the aftercooler has been serviced "properly" recently, or include a contingency for potentially having to replace it! Full info on this is on the above website.

The only "issue" I can think of is these hull designs (Nordics are not alone in this) can be prone to "bow slap" when at anchor or when facing into the waves at dock making for what can be described as a "loud" forward cabin. Some owners have spent several thousand $ "fixing" the bow to eliminate the noise, others have adopted putting out "slap preventors", and others say it is no problem for them.

Great boats, and properly maintained, should give years of very good service.
Enjoy,
Tom

Nordic Tugs

Hello Breezin,
I sailed my whole life until my shoulders and hips said no more. Last year I bought a 2001 Nordic 32. Last summer was great. My wife never enjoyed the boat more. It has performed exceptional. When it was surveyed the surveyor did remark that the newer Nordics aren't built as well as the older ones. For what it's worth. Last fall I visited the American Tug factory. I was impressed with these former Nordic guys. They took us on Hull #1 of the new Wayfarer 365. Lot of boat for $365K new. Good Luck with your search.

Thanks Chris, we have a contract on one a little closer to home.

I did a ton of online research, and attended a couple of trawlerfests, but I felt like we hadn't really looked at enough boats yet.

In fact, my wife had already dismissed it, having decided the salon was too small after looking at pictures online. (I've always liked hearing her say we need a bigger boat.)

Once aboard, she changed her opinion. On the drive home, she was bursting with excitement about it. We went back for a second look a week later, but I knew the decision was already made.
Congratulations on your new purchase! And welcome to the Forum.
Like you we were sailors for a long time before we purchased our Mainship 400 just a year ago. And like you we knew when we left her the first time that the decision was already made. We had to have her!
Did you mention where she is from your home port? Our trip up the ICW was the best part of the process,,,from New Bern to Newport in two wonderful weeks!
Have a blast and again congrats!

Hey Capitaine R, I posted a side view of our NT32, haven't done much outside except for painting the red (faded to pink) stripe and fakestack top. I also replaced the actually non existent teak sundeck ladder steps with ones from Plasteak. They made them to fit for a pretty good price, and hey no exterior wood except for the ensign staff.

Hey Jonboy, that is a pretty 32. I see it is hull # 132, What model year is she?.


My wife and I have a lot of work in front of us to make ours as pretty as yours. And we have lots of outside teak.
