With her plumb bow and salty lines, the Nordic 42 Tug (called the 44 Tug since 2016) offers something different in a world of cookie-cutter production boats. Shes heavily built on a solid fiberglass, semi-displacement hull with a wide 14-foot beam and a deep prop-protecting keel. Her floorplan is very innovative in that the guest stateroom and guest head are reached directly from the salon, while the forward stateroom and head are reached from the wheelhousea layout that affords excellent cabin separation and privacy. (The staterooms in most pilothouse designs are accessed only from the wheelhouse.) The Nordics all-teak interior is very handsome indeed, and a laundry center is tucked beneath the stairs leading up to the pilothouse. The cockpit, partially shaded by a flybridge overhang, includes a molded seat/storage locker, while the fake stack on the cabintop houses a radar reflector. Additional features include twin pilothouse deck doors, walkable side decks, bow thruster, and a spacious engine room. A single 540hp Cummins diesel will cruise at 1012 knots and deliver a top speed of 1516 knots. A flybridge became optional in 2006.
