Forget the year of the boat, instead let the condition of the boat dictate your decision. A buddy just bought a 1990 Nordic Tug 32 (now called a 34). The boat is in very good shape and he did well in his purchase. So if you see a 1990 boat or earlier, check it out before you reject it completely. Some older boats are maintained very well, others not so much.
Sale pending on this one but deals do fall through, might be worth a call.
This Nordic Tug is listed at $189,000 so with money left over I'd do a few upgrades beginning with the cushions. I put all new cushions in my boat at I think it cost $3,500, had them done in Comox. This boat is listed at 32 feet, the same boat new today would be listed as 34 feet. I find the NT 32's to be quite roomy, might be all you really need.
