Perfect for a cozy any-season getaway, the Nordic Tug 26 "Regina" is a safe, comfortable, and efficient way to explore the waters of the San Juans. With a queen-size berth and room to sleep four, "Tiny Tot" wood-burning stove, a propane range and oven, refrigerator, galley, grill, head, GPS, VHF, stereo, rowing tender, windlass, anchor wash, autopilot, power inverter, and a reliable, fuel sipping Yanmar 100 diesel engine, she is the ultimate getaway, whether gunk holing in a nearby cove or cruising into Victoria's inner harbor.
We had a great time renting the Tug. We had a day trip on the water with 5 toddlers and 7 adults. Plenty of space for everyone to hangout and enjoy. Tom did a great job explaining the features and function of the vessel before launching and the boat preformed beautifully. The autopilot feature was a hit with the kids. Tom even met us on Orcas which made the trip possible.
We had a great time renting Tom’s Nordic tug! This particular boat is extremely fuel efficient clocking in at just 2 gallons per hour of run time. It is small enough to fit in just about any slip, which was very important since we were boating in the very height of the season. The Regina is a perfect fit for two people. We were able to take our bikes and never felt cramped. Navigation was easier than I expected and Tom was very patient describing various charts, tides, routes, and the boat’s electronics. He was flexible and communication was great.
I have experience running a similar sized boat but no real experience in larger waters. I think this would be a good fit for someone in a similar situation. We would love to come back and spend even more time on the Regina!
What an epic adventure!! Tom was a joy to work with - super friendly, helpful and a great communicator. And, the Nordic Tug boat was a joy! Very comfortable for our family of 4, handles well and everything was in great working order. We had a great time and made many lifelong memories! I still can't believe we got to do this. Highly recommended!!
