Nordic Tugs Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence!
Nordic Tugs Inc. was formed in 1979 by its founder Jerry Husted, in Woodinville, WA. The first boat model was the 26 footer, which was an immediate success. As sales volumes grew, the need for a larger facility became apparent, so in 1990, with the help of Skagit Economic Development Director Don Wick, Nordic Tugs relocated its manufacturing operations to the Burlington Business Park. The success of the company led to the expansion into larger models, a 32 (34), 37 (39), 42 (44), 49, and 52 (54). After moving to Burlington, Nordic Tugs eventually outgrew its building location, and moved within the business park to a larger lot, and has expanded into three buildings. Nordic Tugs has now built almost 800 yachts, and has established itself overseas as well as in North America. Nordic Tugs enjoys excellent name recognition within the boating industry due to its reputation as a top quality builder. Nordic Tugs Inc. also enjoys an excellent reputation within the local community as an excellent employer.
