Ruby Begonia Yacht Description

The Nordic Tug 32 is a very popular and well designed economical trawler that will not disappoint. "RUBY BEGONIA" has been meticulously maintained and shows like a much newer boat. She is an outstanding example of the perfect yacht for cruising wherever your imagination may take you. You will be hard-pressed to find a Nordic Tug 32 of this vintage in better condition on the market today.

"RUBY BEGONIA" handles like a dream and ideal for gunk holing in shallow bays and coves.  Don't let her size fool you because she is as tough and seaworthy as her larger siblings.  Like all Nordic Tugs, she features a semi-displacement hull with hard chine for greater speed and sea-keeping qualities and a fine entry bow for a quiet ride and better fuel efficiency.  Her leisurely cruising speed is 7-8 knots, but she will get you home in a hurry, at 14+ knots, if necessary.

The pilothouse features an expansive view as well as direct access to the deck.  Her stern thruster will make handling and docking even more of a breeze.  The roomy salon and galley are equipped with a settee that converts into a double berth, and forward you will find a spacious stateroom equipped with a large electric freshwater head and separate shower.  

This vessel is in very good condition with recent headliner, cushions, lighting, electronics, and interior upgrading.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Nordic Tug 32 is a fuel efficient cruising vessel featuring classic Nordic Tug styling. She is built in the USA and is equipped with a standard 270 Cummins diesel engine. As with all Nordic Tugs, the 32 has a semi-displacement hull built with hand-laid heavily reinforced fiberglass with full keel and hard chine, giving her exceptional stability and handling qualities. This very popular cruising vessel features a roomy salon/galley and separate pilothouse with a 360 degree view and 6'8" headroom. Forward is an island berth stateroom with head and large separate stall shower. The roomy salon has a large settee that converts into an oversized double berth.

The galley is forward with induction cooking range, enclosed microwave, toaster oven, and two refrigerators. Levolor blinds reside behind valances on all salon windows. Moving forward, stairs to the pilothouse are to port rising to a custom adjustable captain's seat and bench seat for the mate and passenger.
