32' Nordic Tug 32


The Nordic Tug 32 is a perfect yacht for compact cruising the Bay and Delta.  These boats are very popular and are a well designed economical trawler. She handles like a dream and is ideal for gunk-holing in shallow bays and coves.  Don't let her size fool you, she is as tough and seaworthy as her larger siblings.  Like all Nordic Tugs she features a semi-displacement hull with hard chine for greater speed and sea keeping qualities, a fine entry bow for a quiet ride and fuel efficiency.

Additional Descriptions


A classic boating joke reveals that the perfect boat "drinks eight, feeds four and sleeps two." The Nordic Tug 32 may very nearly be the "perfect" boat, based on this definition.

The saloon is certainly large enough to entertain a group of friends at the cocktail hour. At dinner time, a large settee and table are available for serving two couples. And while the settee folds out to make an additional double berth, most Nordic Tug 32 owners are couples traveling alone.

While the saloon is not huge, it is spacious — and it appears larger than it really is, thanks to large windows on the sides and aft, as well as the lack of a bulkhead between it and the pilothouse.  SCOUT features a galley amidships directly behind the long pilothouse bench. 

The pilothouse is three steps up from the galley. In this all-weather boat, the skipper has good visibility all around. Teak doors on both sides of the pilothouse provide the only access forward, as the saloon is nearly the full width of the boat. 

The helm provides plenty of room for gauges and electronics, with an overhead area for flush-mounting radios and other equipment. The flat surface between the helm and the large windows provides additional room for larger electronics, as well as room to spread out charts. Everything is within easy reach for the skipper, and the adjustable helm bench seat allows for sitting and standing operation of the boat.

Forward of the pilothouse and down three steps is the master stateroom. The master features plenty of room for clothes in large hanging lockers and additional storage under the berth. Nicely finished, this stateroom is neither dark nor cramped. It has a nice, open feeling, thanks to light wall coverings instead of the teak prevalent throughout the rest of the boat.

The head adjoins the master stateroom. Well laid out, there is a separate shower stall and room to dry off and dress in the head compartment itself. With 100 gallons on board, there is plenty of water to take long cruises and still enjoy regular showers.
