Nordic Tug Sales


It’s been a fun summer of yacht sales.  This last week I had two nice comments from customers who bought a tug from me.
My friends Randy and Jackie had been looking for a boat for about a year.  Having discovered over the last couple of years that they love cruising, it was time to move up to a bigger boat.  Together we looked at about everything on the market. Knowing them well I really felt that a 37 Nordic Tug was the boat that would fit there overall style and comfort needs.
When the right 37 came along at the right price we jumped on it.  After some upgrades to the Anniversary Addition 37 and a few shake down cruises they were off to Desolation Sound and beyond.
Just the other day Randy called from Jonstone Straight.  He said they were out in the Straight and it was rough and nasty and they felt perfectly safe.  They were so thrilled with the way the boat handled the rough water.
And of course I was happy to hear that I had put my friends and customers in the right boat.
I also had just herd from a 2001 Nordic Tug 32 customer that I just sold.  He was thrilled with the way his Tug handled on a circumnavigation of Fadalgo Island.  Having owned sail boats up until this point he chose to cruise at 1100 RPM 6.5 knots.  But then when he got to Deception Pass he reported that he was looking at a 3 knot current and some scary looking whirlpools. So he put the RPM up to 2000 and the boat scooted right through with ease.  “That’s what Nordic Tugs are all about, I said”

Just Married! July 16, 2016


One month ago today I married the love of my life Niccole.  It is a whole new chapter for both of us.  We are excited about building a new life together with endless possibilities.
Niccole and I had a wonderful wedding at the Skyline Beach Club.  We were so pleased with the turnout of caring friends.  Everything went off without a hitch. Though Niccole’s Mom did not live long enough to make it to the wedding, she was remembered, and with us in spirit, along with Niccole’s son Taylor who is always in our hearts.
My parents were able to make it to our wedding, traveling 250 miles up from Tigard Oregon.  Special thanks to my sister and her family for the tremendous effort it took to get them safely up to our wedding and back home again.  I also want to thank Jazzy for offering a toast at are wedding, we were both moved and honored by her speech.
Though we have been together for many years now we are both surprised at how good it feels to finally be married, and have the comfort of that commitment between us.  We feel so blessed and grateful to have each other.
