Why pay a 6-figure ransom for production tug yachts when you can build our NORDCOASTER for a fraction of the cost? Compare features: Double stateroom, enclosed head and shower, roomy pilothouse with side deck access both sides, self-contained galley, wide convertible dinette, lots of tankage, roomy cockpit, dinghy boatdeck, plenty of storage, and more!

Construction in plywood or welded aluminum is well suited to do-it-yourselfers. Plywood hulls with straight transom use a double diagonally planked bottom (3/4" total thickness) and 1/2" sheet plywood sides. Aluminum hulls use straight or radiused transom, with .160" sides and .188" thick bottom.

Power options include single centrally-located inboard or stern-mounted I/O. Speeds from 6 to 18 knots are possible, within a power range of 25 to 155 HP. And assuming a wide load permit with a suitable tow vehicle, trailering NORDCOASTER is an option that can save slip fees and broaden your choice of cruising grounds (I/O option recommended for trailering).

The easily-driven semi-planing hull features a deep-V forefoot and ample freeboard forward for an easy, dry ride. Bottom lines transition to a modified V aft for economy and stability. Keel options include a long, deep skeg (recommended where ultimate top speed is not critical), or an abbreviated shallower skeg where optimum speeds or I/O motor are desired.

FULL-SIZE PATTERNS are provided for all frame member contours. Plans include instructions and hull material listings, and fastening schedule for wood hulls.
