26' Nordic Tugs 1981

The Nordic Tug 26 is a salty and very distinctive character boat
with an upright profile and a well-arranged interior suitable for the cruising couple. More than
just an eye-catching design, however, she’s built well and designed for comfortable coastal cruising. Construction is solid fiberglass, and her full-keel, semi-displacement hull features a rounded transom and a wide 9'6" beam. Two floorplans were available—one
with V-berths and the other with an offset double berth—and the
original L-shaped lounge in the salon was replaced in 1995 with a
dinette. The pilothouse is raised two steps from the salon.
