GADABOUT is as close to a new boat as you can get, only better. Purchased new from the dealer in August of 2020 and then commissioned, she has only 100 hours on her. The owners have decided boating is not for them and this presents a terrific opportunity for someone to get a boat that is essentially new, but has the equipment needed to avoid supply chain issues and take off immediately.
Equipped with a 270 hp Volvo diesel, Northern Lights Genset, RIB Inflatable on a Seawise mount w/8hp Tohatsu and Hydronic heating. Volvo engine has extended five year/1000 hr transferable warranty. And she was hauled out and repainted including PropSpeed on all the underwater metal in Mar 2022. While Nordic Tugs are styled like a traditional boat, they are engineered to be very modern. He top speed is rated at 17kts with a cruising speed on 8-14kts. She is a blend of beautiful and modern function that is widely appreciated throughout the PNW.

The exterior of the boat is composed of easy to maintain materials and has storage compartments for all of your docking equipment. The cabin top has a generous amount of space to carry a couple of kayaks, deck chairs, crab pots, large cooler or other assorted gear. The rails are extra large 1 1/4 in polished stainless steel and netting has been installed to keep your kids or furry friends safe.There is a shower in the cockpit to clean their paws when returning from the beach.
The main salon has a a generous L shaped dinette to starboard with table and another seat to port. The galley is to port with Corian countertops, a two burner ENO propane stove, Muave microwave/convection oven, stainless steel sink and Norcold R4500 refrigerator/freezer. There is a nice seat at the end of the counter. There are windows surrounding the salon that are trimmed with beautiful sapele and have privacy blinds. There is ample storage everywhere you can imagine.
The electrical panels are located on both sides of the transition area from salon to pilothouse. Blue Seas panels for A/C & D/C are marked and easy to see. The controls for remote operation of the generator is in the port panel.
Three steps take you up to the pilothouse with the helm station to starboard and a large seat for the mate to port. Visibility and ventilation are excellent from here. All the controls for operating the boat are here.
The pilothouse has doors on each side for excellent ventilation & egress. They are about three feet above a standard dock. Access to the forward deck and anchoring gear can be from either side of the boat.
Off center to port are three steps down to the master cabin and head. The bed is a walk around bed with drawers under and a custom innerspring mattress. The head is very generous for a boat of this size. There is a shower with seat, a Tecma electric head and sink. There are plenty of opening hatches and ports, with screens.
