Nordic Tugs

Nordic Tugs is an American builder of trawler tugs based in Bulrington, WA. Founded in 1980, the company produces six different pleasure tug models ranging from 26 to 54 feet in length. So what exactly is a "trawler tug?" Essentially, it's a boat with a semi-displacement, trawler-type hull and above-the-waterline design cues taken from the same tugs that earn their living pushing big ships around. Those cues include high pilothouses with vertical windows, tall, almost plumb bows, and gently rounded sterns. Inside, the boats offer expansive interiors fitted with sustainable woods aimed at long-distance cruising boaters. Every boat is a single-engine configuration, allowing these tough boats to sip fuel ultra-efficiently underway. Each hull, deck, and superstructure are built with multi-directional stitch mat fiberglass cloth and a special vinylester resin that resists osmotic blistering. Below the waterline, stainless steel is used to reinforce critical areas, while inside the hull, only marine-grade tinned electrical wiring is used on each Nordic Tug's systems The result? A cruising tug that will stand the test of time.

Boat Description

Introduced 30 years ago and last produced in 1997, the Nordic Tug 26 is back by popular demand. While we have modified her to take advantage of advances in technology, she remains true to her roots, and her timeless style attracts interest from curious onlookers at the docks and on the water.The 26 was the first Nordic Tug model, developed during the oil embargo years of the mid-1970s, with a fuel-stingy design that complimented her nostalgic "slow cruising" tugboat appearance. Though her 115 hp (86 kw) Cummins diesel burns less than one gph at six knots or two gph at eight knots, she can still kick it up when needed to reach a top speed of 14 knots.Four adults can sleep in comfort with plenty of room for gear, making her the perfect vacation and weekend boat for couples and small families.With her smooth, stable ride and economic cruising, the 26 is made to get you out exploring the world beyond the breakwater.
