Basic Info

Yacht Name: Southern Cross
Builder: Nordic Tugs
Model: 34
Year: 2015
Location: Annapolis, MD
Hull Material: Fiberglass

Nordic Tugs are known for their build quality, and attention to detail, if fiberglass to mechanicals, to electrical, plus the woodwork is top shelf. They are extremely sea kindly, fuel efficient and easily offer owner maintainability. You’ll find them cruising the Inside Passage to Alaska as this Listing Broker has seen last year. You’ll see them in the Bahamas and as far north as Nova Scotia and beyond, PLUS America's Great Loop. They are what a trawler should be, in a size that as we age, doesn’t overpower the crew.

Our listing is a 2015 Nordic Tug 34 with less than 400 hours on her Volvo D4 2601F diesel. Her generator is a 5kw Northern Lights with less than 120 hours.  Southern Cross as she’s called, saw very little use her entire life. She has been always professionally cared for and maintained. She shows extremely well and can be mistaken for almost a new boat.

Some of her highlights are a LARGER Master Berth, Marine Air 2 unit air conditioning and reverse cycle heat and custom Ultraleather in the Salon and Pilothouse. Her interior floor consists of Amtico floors throughout. Her galley offers a three burner electric stove-top. The refrigerator and separate freezer is a Nova Kool system, and there is a microwave,  There is LED lighting throughout her lovely interior, besides custom day and night screens, and Ocean Air screens in the forward master cabin, with 4 12v Hella fans throughout the vessel.  

She offers a powerful bow thruster for easy docking and movability, a powerful 1000W windlass, full Raymarine electronics, and Lewmar hatches and screens throughout. 

Southern Cross has NEW AGM batteries installed in 2019 and a Portland Pudgy dinghy on the stern swim platform with davits, plus hot and cold cockpit shower.

The list goes on and on. 

Southern Cross will be arriving to Annapolis, Maryland mid August to be sold, unless someone captures her before hand. She is a wonderful opportunity, saving her new owners lots of money.

She's a wonderful comfortable cruising boat which is owned and being sold by an absolutely wonderful aging couple. Southern Cross will allow you to see the stars.

“If you’re looking for a trawler to fulfill your quest for adventure, look no further than the Nordic Tug 34. It’s spacious enough to sleep two couples comfortably and features a roomy salon and galley for entertaining, yet is the ideal size for exploring shallow coves, navigating the Great Loop or cruising the scenic Alaskan coastline. Her pilothouse offers panoramic 360-degree views and direct access to the deck. She is outfitted with enough cruising power to get you moving in the teens while still being conservative on fuel. A standard bow thruster allows for confident maneuvering and docking in close quarters. Constructed with level of quality and detail that Nordic Tugs are known for, Nordic Tug 34 gives you a solid, seaworthy ride that instills the confidence to chart the course for your next adventure.” ~ Nordic Tugs

Quality Over Quantity- Nordic Tugs

Built with Quality in every partSome 1,200 to 1,500 parts go into each Nordic Tug, and each part is carefully chosen for its durability, performance and aesthetics.

We use only multidirectional stitch mat fiberglass cloth and a special vinylester resin for added strength, durability and resistance to osmotic blistering. Stainless steel reinforces critical areas such as the shoe and rudder support on the keel.

The hull and deck joint as well as the bond of all major laminated components is fiberglass reinforced for maximum strength. Wires and cables are marine grade tinned-copper for a lifetime of trouble-free operation. Finishing materials like solid hard woods, hand-picked to match grain, add elegance to the interior.

From soles to salon roof, Nordic Tugs are built for years of reliable service so you and your family can go where you want, when you want, and know that your boat is ready and waiting for the next journey.

Built for comfortable cruisingDesigning the hull for a cruiser or trawler is a delicate balancing act. You want a design that offers stability both for comfort and safety, adequate speed so you can get to your destination and have time to enjoy it.  Add fuel efficiency into the perfect cruising formula so you can explore without worrying about the next fuel stop.

At Nordic Tugs, we have met this challenge with our unique semi-displacement hull, designed to meet the demands of serious inland and coastal cruising. At low speed, it conserves fuel and reduces roll. At high speed, it rises up to reduce drag. A versatility that neither a full displacement nor planing hull can match.

The unprecedented structural integrity and reliability of our hulls allows us to provide our customers with a 10-year warranty against both structural failure.

Built for Confidence at SeaEvery handcrafted Nordic Tugs boat begins with thoughtful design, from fiberglass components engineered for added strength and safety to a spacious engine room with systems that are easy to access and clearly labeled. We understand that quiet operation and freedom from vibration is important to you.   Noise reduction is designed from the keel up and is never an afterthought.

Nordic Tugs are designed by top marine naval architects. Then our highly trained lamination specialists, experienced carpenters and skilled mechanics take that design and execute it with precision and artistry, producing a boat that exceeds all expectations for quality.

At the dock or offshore, you will notice the skill that is applied in the assembly of every component of your Nordic Tugs trawler. Confidence comes naturally when cruising in a state of the art vessel.

Built with PrideAt Nordic Tugs, the emphasis is always on quality over quantity. Each vessel is inspected at every stage to ensure it meets our stringent requirements for performance, durability, comfort, silent operation and fuel efficiency. Over 120 components and processes are monitored on the hull and deck before the two parts are ever bonded together, and this is only the beginning of Nordic Tugs’ quality assurance.

Our vacuum-infusion process creates parts with a precisely controlled amount of resin for exact duplicates in weight, strength and density. Finishing work is equally meticulous, from the hand-picked hard woods to the wiring harness, called by one reviewer “a textbook example of how to do it right.”

Only after the entire boat has been checked and all systems have been run-up at the factory does it have a chance to prove itself at sea. A Nordic Tugs’ test crew puts every boat through an extensive protocol of tests and maneuvers in multiple sea conditions to ensure the highest quality standards before it is returned to the plant and prepared for delivery. During our day-long sea trials, we put the boat through its paces — cruising at various speeds, executing quick turns and making sudden accelerations and decelerations. Armed with testing equipment from decibel and infrared meters to anemometers, our knowledgeable sea trial team ensures that all systems are operating correctly and makes minute adjustments to ensure that the boat you receive is turnkey and ready for cruising.

It is the kind of quality you rarely find in production boats — a quality we confidently back with a full 10-year hull warranty.

Built for life’s adventureTo understand Nordic Tugs trawlers, a good place to start is with our owners who are experienced mariners. Most Nordic Tug owners have already owned a sailboat and or even a powerboat, but all owners have a clear idea of what they value in their ultimate cruiser. After all, our owners spend twice as many hours on the water each year compared to the average yacht owner. Some of that has to do with the comfort, fuel-efficiency and sense of community, but mostly it comes down to quality of life.   Our owners have it.

Nordic Tugs owners are invariably energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about life and sharing adventures on the sea.
