Nordic Tugs 32, 1998

Total time on Cummins 5.9 engine is 1550 hours. This is a well-maintained NT located in Holland, MI and is now, as it always has been, being stored in a heated barn. This is an ideal, affordable boat for a couple looking to do the loop. With considerable tweaking done to the bottom and rudder, the real cruise speed is 7.8 kts at a fuel burn of 1.9 gallons per hour. This give an absolute range of over 800 miles. It is equipped with the usual chart plotter and autopilot with GPS tracking. Numerous detail modifications and improvements have been made enhance the overall cruising experience. With the passing of my wife I'm no longer in a position to do extended cruising. Priced at $124,900

I like the Nordic, has it always been in fresh water? Post some more pictures would give folks and idea of the layout and condition. Good luck with the sale. Seems to be a reasonable priced .

One selling feature...most NT32's have three windows per side in the saloon vs two on this boat.
The same is true with most NT42's. When we purchased Blue Sky (NT42 #1) which has just the two windows per side we didn't think about it much, but after being on other NT's with three windows per side, I realized just how much extra wall space we had for mug racks etc. including a hanging locker in the port aft corner.

Our 32 also has only 2 window per side in the saloon and a hanging locker at the aft starboard.

And we like the fake stack, that's where the plan on installing the air compressor and tank for air horns.

I removed the stack to have room to store the dinghy on the upper deck. Amazing how much extras space there is up there without the stack. Makes for a great gathering spot for sundowners! The stack comes with the boat, so it can be had with or without. And another post from Captain Ron correctly identified the listing, which includes many pictures. As far as I know, it has always been in fresh water. At least I can't find a trace of the typical saltwater corrosion issues. And, yes, it can be seen any time up until perhaps the 10th of January when I go south for a few weeks. Even then, refer to the listing and the listing broker can show it.

My not-useless stack contains the propane tank for the stove.

Yes, there is never enough space on a boat. The earlier ones, I believe, had a V-berth and I like those better. On the other boat we slept "head first" and that made it really easy to get in and out. Then the later ones had a center berth, but then the length of the berth is compromised as is the space for the head. As they say, you pays your money and takes your choice. For us, this configuration worked fine. I always figure there is nothing wrong with a boat that couldn't be fixed by making it bigger.

For enough money, you can have a walk around island berth. It is yours and lady decision. Is the money worth all the snuggling and body heat ETC? WINK

My wife wanted to draw up some plans to make ours a center berth before we made our first voyage. Luckily I put it off and after a few nights sleep she changed her mind and now she really likes this setup. And I couldn't agree more, mostly because I didn't need the extra project.

Curious about the missing stack. On my 2002 Nordic Tug 32 the hollow stack provides the headroom to go between the pilot house and salon

Adagio43- Regarding the stack and the headroom: I believe the earlier models (maybe prior to 2002?) Had the steps to thr PH along the portside while yours are closer to centerline? On mine the stack is a bolt on and there is no cut out in the PH roof for the extra headroom.

Yes, on the later models the companionway to the pilot house is in the center and the roof is cut away to provide more headroom. That has its pros and cons. The headroom is certainly a good thing, but the pilothouse seat is then cut in two. I like the long seat that holds three or one taking a nap. And that makes removing the stack not practical.
