Nordic Tugs has repowered the 32 Pilothouse Cruiser.

Nordic Tugs has repowered the 32 Pilothouse Cruiser. Beginning with the 2007 model year boats, the Nordic Tugs 32’s standard power is the Volvo Penta D-6 280-hp electronic diesel engine.

This is the last model in the lineup to receive the EPA Tier II regulated engine. Early sea trial reports show the boat’s top speed at 18 knots. At 8 knots the fuel burn is recorded at 2 to 2.5 gph.

In addition to the new engine, several other changes have been made such as streamlined bow rails for added safety, additional convenience storage, and a redesigned comfort-enhanced helm seat. Many other components are included in the new 32, ensuring Nordic Tugs’ commitment to meet the NMMA/ABYC Certification standards.

Headquartered in Burlington, Wash., Nordic Tugs, Inc. manufactures hand-built, classic tug-style pilothouse cruisers from 32 to 52 feet. www.nordictugs.com
