…Nordic Tugs®, Inc., has unveiled the newest model in its range of pilothouse trawlers, the 2011 Nordic Tug 39. Successor to the popular Nordic Tug 37, the new 39 is built on the same Lynn Senour-designed hull as that of its predecessor, but features a number of significant refinements, many of these in response to suggestions from current owners. The new cruiser is on track to complete sea trials prior to its public debut at the Nordic Tugs rendezvous, June 10th-13th, in Anacortes, Washington. Press previews will be scheduled for June 10th and the morning of the 11th.

Nordic Tugs President and CEO Andy Lund described the new vessel as an evolutionary advancement developed to offer a better cruising experience. “We began with an enormously successful design, and then contacted our many Nordic Tugs 37 owners for their feedback on how we could improve it,” he said, adding that many of the features offered in the new 39 are in direct response to customers’ suggestions.

Most evident among the changes are larger windows at salon and pilot house levels, designed to offer passengers a more expansive view and to improve sightlines from the helm.
