AMAZING CRUISER! Built in the Northwest for the Northwest AND Alaska, the Nordic Tug 42 sets the standard for cruising yachts. This model is a great liveaboard as well. She features two heads and a master stateroom with a queen walk-around bed. Her galley is roomy and there are great features throughout this vessel, as well as storage options galore! Her bottom was done this year and she has new zincs. This is a great price for a pristine Nordic Tug at this size and with newer diesel power to boot! You are in the right place at the right time, so call today to see this beautiful tug in person!
When you enter the salon of this classic cruiser, you’re met with a beautifully designed and teak-trimmed interior. Home-like comfort begins with the starboard side L-shaped settee with its plush cushions and seating for at least four adults. The table is movable for and can be used in other areas of the boat. It converts into a double berth at night and storage is located beneath the cushions. A nice privacy curtain squares this berth off for when you would like privacy at night. There is a lot of attention to detail with extras throughout the salon like a well-placed lamp by the settee. Across is a wonderful amount of storage with a hanging locker and buffet-style wall furnishing. A table flips up from the gallery bar, super handy for parties or for use as a work-from-home office spot. The U-shaped galley is forward on port. It has a Force 10 three-burner stove/oven combo, a large Norcold refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, a large double basin sink, and a huge amount of counterspace! Additional counterspace is across the companionway on starboard, as well as additional storage. A small set of stairs down from the main level takes you to the guest stateroom and guest head. Midway down the stairs is a cubby for storage or put a small chest freezer here. The guest stateroom has two single berths in a bunkbed arrangement, a chest of drawers that also doubles as a night table, a closet, and reading lamps. Take a few stairs to reach the pilothouse with its ship-style helm and chart drawer under the helm. To the rear, a raised bench seats three or more adults comfortably and has a great view from every side and a handy petite cocktail table. This can convert to an additional single berth at night. Port and starboard side doors let you easily access the side decks for ease of docking or just to step outside to enjoy the weather. One of the best features of Nugget B is its large master suite in the bow, which is accessed by way of a private curved staircase from the pilothouse. Its walk-around queen size berth gives this the feeling a true bedroom instead of a v-berth. Two reading lamps are mounted on the wall on both sides of the bed. His and hers hanging lockers and drawers and storage underneath the bed means you don’t have to fight for closet space with your partner. The master head is off the suite and has a large separate shower stall. In all, Nugget B sleeps seven quite comfortably. This is a cozy, cozy vessel that provides comfort for those extra long voyages. A true home away from home with storage galore.
The aft deck on this beauty is large and uncluttered and more than half of it is protected by the salon roof overhang so you can enjoy your deck in all kinds of weather. Lighting underneath illuminates the deck in dark hours. Come aboard easily by way of her swim deck and port side transom door. The side decks are accessible along both sides and are up a couple of steps from the cockpit sole. Strong stainless-steel railing circles nearly the entire boat. Her big bow is excellent for sunbathing on or lounging on while cruising. Perched atop the cabin roof is a Greg Jackson electric dinghy davit. There is a dinghy rack system for your safety. Reach this area by the ladder from the starboard side deck. The side decks are wide and easy to navigate. If you use Nugget B to fish from, she has plenty of space all around the vessel and then a saltwater wash down system to help with cleanup.
Nugget B runs on one 2006 Cummins 8.3 450 horsepower diesel engine with 1,335 hours on it. She cruises at a nice 9.5 knots. Her two fuel tanks carry a generous 500 gallons of fuel and she utilizes 10 gallons of fuel per hour. She has a four-blade bronze propeller and twin disc reduction gear, hydraulic steering and cable controls. When you want to anchor, she has a Lighthouse electric winch with a 66-pound Sea Hook anchor and 300 feet of chain. She also comes with another anchor. When docking, the electric Sidepower bow thruster will make it easy to fit into snug places.
A great electronics package comes with Nugget B, including navigation electronics like the Com-Nav 1001 auto pilot, an Echotec GPS and plotter, a Fununo FCV 667 depth sounder and a Ratheon R20-24-mile radar. For communications, you have an Icom M-127 VHF. She has a Xantrex battery charger and inverter, three start batteries and four house bank. Her batteries were replaced in 2019 and 2020. While out cruising, you have a Northern Lights 8kw diesel generator with 7,704 hours on it to provide your power needs. While at the dock, plug her into dual 60 amp shore power. At the helm, you have two search lights with a remote, a Davis weather monitor, and an electric wiper at each of the three windshields.
This well-rounded and beautiful package would make an excellent year-round home for a retired couple looking for a new adventure, for a family looking to make some multi-day cruises, or for just about anything you can dream up. Call today to see her.
