There is no boat quite like the Nordic Tug 26, the little vessel that spawned several new companies and started a whole new type of recreational boat. She has been updated since she was introduced and is now called the "26cr" -- for "cruise ready." And "ready" she is, with nearly everything needed for a couple to go cruising to distant horizons. She is a single-engine boat made for the times and a couple can easily handle her without breaking the bank. We often say that dollar-for-dollar the best boating investment is a small boat and we think the Nordic Tug 26cr proves the point.
