2008 Nordic Tug 37

Hythe Marina Village, Hampshire


Pilgirm is a wonderful example of these well engineered, capable 37' trawler yachts, built in 2008 by Nordic Tugs Inc to UK specification. Well known in the US, less familiar here, she will appeal to admirers of Nordhavns or Grand Banks. Teak joinery, teak and holly sole, Corian worktops and suede upholstery. With her single 380hp Cummins she is capable of 17 knots. At 7 knots her range is some 1,400 nautical miles, consuming less than a litre per mile. Two double cabins. Convertible saloon. Large galley. Heads with separate shower compartment. Bow and stern thrusters, generator, inverter, charger. Upper deck. Large capacity tanks including for both grey and black water. In great order throughout. A must see for anyone in the market for a well built, long range explorer or trawler yacht.

Manufacturer Provided Description

With a fuel-efficient Cummins electronically controlled diesel engine, the Nordic Tug 37 can reach speeds in excess of 15 knots, yet is economical enough to cruise over 1,000 nautical miles while burning less than 3 gallons per hour. The 37 gives customers an option for a boat with accommodations similar to that of the 42 in a smaller and more economical package.

Designed by Lynn Senour, the originator of the Nordic Tug design, the 37 shares many of the features found in her larger and smaller siblings such as a large ship-style pilothouse, access to the deck from either side, hand-laid fiberglass hull with hard chine and full keel as well as the same attributes of speed and sea keeping qualities. The waterline length of the 37 is actually 39' 10" due to a molded-in swim step that is essentially an extension of the hull giving her greater speed, stability and fuel economy.
