The most popular boat of her type ever built, the Nordic Tug 32 is a full-keeled, semi-displacement cruiser whose classic tug boat profile and quality construction have endeared her to yachting enthusiasts for many years.  Indeed, with her plumb bow, rounded stern, and false smokestack, the 32 is an unquestionably eye catching design.  This particular 32 was built as a factory prototype for several possible changes to the later 32s.  One of the features is the larger forward cabin with two V-berths which measure 94” long and the upgraded Cummins QSB Electronic engine changed from the standard 220 hp to a larger 305 hp.  The interior features a large salon with the galley along the port side, teak paneling and beautiful carpeting.  The salon settee does convert into a double berth for additional guests. 

SARAYU was lift kept for many years in Chesapeake Bay and now is located in New Bern, NC.  The hull is painted “Brick Red” with an Awl-Grip clear coat for long lasting shine.  



A classic Nordic Tug with unmatched character and flawless finished joinery.  The interior of “SARAYU” features neutral sand colored Ultra-Leather fabrics, matching carpeting, and day/night blinds for added natural light and privacy.  The large windows allow natural light and ventilation through those that slide open.

As you enter from the cockpit there is a cockpit storage locker forward along the port side that features a propane tank and storage.  The ladder to the cabin top is stainless steel and leads to the top with high stainless steel stanchions for added safety.  There is a stainless steel outboard motor and dingy mounts on the swim platform and a folding swim ladder. 

Entry into the main cabin is through a starboard side cockpit door.  Down a few teak steps you enter the main cabin.  To starboard is a hanging locker with a storage shelf above.  Along the starboard side is the “L” shaped settee which converts into a double berth with two storage cabinets under the berth.  Forward is a cabinet over the settee.  The table is a high/low table.  To port is the large “L” shaped galley area.  Aft there is a large countertop with storage cabinets underneath.  In the corner is a corner cabinet above the counter and the galley area is large with plenty of countertop space, storage cabinets and drawers.  Forward is a bulkhead with an additional storage cabinet.  Up a few carpeted steps the electric panels are on each side with the 12 volt to starboard and the 120 volt to port.  Up the steps you enter the pilot house.  The port side features a double companion seat with a folding foot rest and a sliding door with the step having additional storage.  To starboard are the double helm seat with folding foot rest and a sliding door with additional storage under the step.  The helm seat is adjustable for the helmsman.  The helm is located along the port side and features excellent visibility and easy access to all controls.

Down a few carpeted steps and to port are a storage cabinet and the Tank Watch monitoring station.  Across is access into the head with a separate shower stall, teak and holy flooring, Vacu-Flush head and Corian countertop with molded sink.  The V-Berth is large and was reconfigured by Nordic Tug.  Each side measures 96 inches and there is a filler cushion as well.  There are outboard shelves and several cabinets and an open storage area under the port berth.  Along the port side is a hanging locker
