2003 Nordic Tugs 52

Seattle, Washington

$649,000

Originally built in 2003 for the then CEO of Nordic Tug, this was the flagship of their product line. The 52 model was later re-named to 54, although the dimensions are the same. True North has updated electronics, updated HD radar, a hydronic furnace, new refrigerators in the galley, water maker, and a 4kw inverter with 8 large house batteries (which enable you to stay on the hook for several days without running the generator).You'll also find many redundancies throughout. This is a must see boat!

True North's hard chines and deep keel reduce repeat roll. The fact she has Twin Cummins 6CTA 8.3 480HP (each) engines allows her to sip fuel at lower RPMs, while at the same time allowing a power up to move more rapidly, when desired.

If you are looking for a trawler with delightfully easy maneuverability, twin screws, Kobelt jogger rudder control, and hydraulic bow thruster,  then True North is your boat. Her sweet spot cruising speed is 9 knots and her approximate range is 2000 miles. She is now located in Seattle, Washington behind Irwin Yacht Sales  office.
