"Clock Work" is an extremely well-equipped Nordic Tug 42. She's a combination of the second-generation layout (post-2003) that yields a more livable/usable interior, married to a mechanically injected Cummins 6CT "450 Diamond" engine.

The Engine - The #1 top criteria for the current owner when searching out a 42 in 2012 was a
particular version of a particular engine. The Cummins 6CT "450 Diamond" is one of the most
reliable marine diesels ever made, but the one on this particular boat took it further. Unlike most
42's with the second-gen internal layout, this engine is entirely mechanical... unencumbered
by the electronic engine controls and emissions gear necessitated by EPA Tier 3 and 4 nonroad/
marine diesel requirements of the early/mid-2000s.
The result of avoiding the complexity of the electronics and emissions "features" is a significantly
simpler engine. This means a significantly more reliable/less vulnerable engine, reliability being
guaranteed by design... fewer things to break/burn-out/turn intermittent and bring you to a dead
stop. You can't fix what isn't there in the first place. And this one still has 75% of its projected
engine life still left in it.

The Flybridge - The upper operating position (flybridge) has all of the electronics from the pilothouse replicated up top. For the new tug owner, the all-around visibility available at this
commanding position affords the absolute best learning assist for low speed, close-quarters
maneuvering, such as in marinas and at fuel docks and pump-outs. You aren't born knowing
these things and the Flybridge position will make you better, faster. For the seasoned operator,
it's simply good to have the choice of driving in either position and it turns out to be one of the
best places on the boat to entertain, or watch the sun set.

The Thruster Set - Clock Work was recently fitted out with a stern thruster and during that, a new
bow thruster was also installed. Both are proportional (vs ON/OFF) which greatly reduce the
probability of a thermal or battery-charge outage after a period of maneuvering in, say a marina.
While they can greatly enhance close quarters maneuvering, the reason these were added to
Clock Work was for "dock hold." Put the boat in the slip... press the dock hold button and the
boat snugs itself up to the dock with the thrusters allowing the owner to casually tie off his own
lines his own way. Apparently even many new boats with bow and stern thrusters don't always
incorporate dock hold.


She will not disappoint, call today to get aboard to take a tour.
