Classic LNVT lines, Cummins powered, beautiful interior & updated electronics

1989 Lord Nelson Victory Tug     Tortuga      $154,500

The Lord Nelson Victory Tug looks great on the water.  Built on a traditional New England design hull with a bluff bow and a curvy sheerline; they are salty!    The raised pilothouse is warm and inviting for four-season cruising.  These are heavily built and tough boats.

Tortuga is hull #73, a very late model LNVT featuring the much sought after updated interior arrangement.  This rare interior has a U-shaped galley on the starboard side of the salon, the pilothouse access in along port side allowing a much larger pilothouse seating area.  As the PH seat is longer the new design also is made convertible to a single berth.

New Raymarine touchscreen E90w multifunction display with new digital radar, and a new Raymarine autopilot are featured in the nicely updated electronics suite.

Powered by a low-hour Cummings 6BT3.9 4-cylinder 150-hp diesel engine.  She will burn just a couple of gallons per hour at her displacement hull speed of approximately 7.5 knots.  This year (2014) the cooling system was serviced with a new heat exchanger, the turbo & exhaust elbow were also replaced. She is well maintained.

Tortuga is ready for your family’s summer vacation.

She looks great and has been well kept.  Call Steve at 206-321-2164 for a private showing.  Come and see her on Trawler Row.
