The Nordic Tug 42 pilothouse design is an ideal couple cruiser for both coastal and inland waters. Built on a proven semi-displacement hull, these boats have a hull form and horsepower to pound ratio that allow them to run at higher speeds when needed, yet enjoy economical displacement cruise speeds and economy like her slower full displacements cousins. This brilliant design provides the speed capability that substantially improves stability in snotty conditions, while slower designs will continue to wallow their way towards landfall. This unique blend of design characteristics allows owners to enjoy the best of both worlds. Nordic Tugs quality and performance is a testament to a 43 year production run and these vessels continue to perform well on the water and in the market.
