I agree, and would love to have a Deere 4045M, but Nordic has not used Deere and getting them to put one in a new boat will be a challenge. Out here Deere and Lugger are considered to be work boat engines.

Why wouldn't you put a work boat engine in a tug? Might point out to them that Kadey Krogan and Nordhavn use them in their boats.

Thread got me doing a little more research, especially as we contemplate getting back in the game, one of these style boats may make sense for us. I've always liked the build of the American Tugs a little better but admittedly haven't spent much time on a Nordic.

American Tug uses Cummins and some models have the option of using one of thie commercial units.

Nordic appears to be a Volvo house now.
