Manufacturers Description
From Powerboat Guide:
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.  She's heavily built on a solid fiberglass, semi-displacement hull with a wide 14' 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 wheelhouse- a layout that affords excellent cabin separation and privacy.  The stateroom in most pilothouse designs are accessed only from the wheelhouse.
The Nordic's 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 & Stern Thrusters, and a spacious engine room.  A single Cummins 450 HP diesel engine will cruise at 10-12 knots and deliver a top end speed of 15-16 knots.
