Wilde Yacht Sales in Essex, Conn., will host the exclusive premier of Nordic Tugs’ new articulating rudder option with a Sept. 8 open house.

The boatbuilder will incorporate this new feature on its 2008 37-, 42- and 52-foot models.

Nordic Tugs says its articulating rudder provides numerous benefits, including increased maneuverability, a significantly tightened turning radius and increased steerage while backing down. Additionally, the articulating rudder is designed for improved docking ability, which often eliminates the need for stern thrusters on larger boats.

The event will allow visitors to experience firsthand the benefits of the articulating rudder during sea trials on a 2008 Nordic Tugs 37- and 42-foot trawler at the open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information or to make an appointment for a sea trial, (888) 447-6944. www.wildeyachts.com
