Epiphany is a meticulously cared for vessel and pride of ownership shows in her condition. Presented with a gray cove stripe Epiphany is a handsome example of a Nordic 37 that will turn heads in every port. Extensive maintenance records and log book available for your review. Call to arrange a private showing.
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 wheelhouse, 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.
Epiphany has enjoyed meticulous maintenance and many upgrades including:

In the early 1970s, sailboat builder Jerry Husted teamed up with yacht designer Lynn Senour to produce a fuel-efficient, seaworthy cruising powerboat with a salty look. The result was the Nordic Tug 26, a single-diesel pilothouse cruiser with a tugboat look. Riding a wave of interest in trawler-style vessels, the design proved successful (more than 170 were built) and led to a larger model, the Nordic Tug 32, introduced in the mid-1980s. These boats helped the builder establish a reputation for craftsmanship and amenities, as well as performance and sea-kindliness.
The Nordic Tug 37 debuted in 1998, featuring a 330-hp diesel power plant and a two-stateroom layout.
If you look at one of these semi-displacement hulls out of the water, you'll notice the qualities that provide all that performance, responsiveness and stability: a sharp entry, hard chines, and a long, deep skeg that protects the shaft and prop, and that massive rudder.
Standing at the wheel or sitting in the big bench seat, the visibility is very good. There are opening ports at eye level looking back over the cabin top, which is good for straight back, but not to port.
The 22-inch wide integral swim platform extends the waterline length to nearly 39 feet.
The cabin top deck measures a full 12 and a half feet long and 11 feet wide, protected by a sturdy stainless-steel rail all around and accessible by a stainless ladder. It extends back to protect the five-foot wide aft deck.
The aft deck itself is a comfortable five feet long, enough space to spread out a couple of folding chairs. A molded bench seat hides ample deck storage. An alcove molded into the transom provides handy space for stowing four big fenders, and a hatch in the sole provides access to a lazarette for stowing additional bulky items.
You enter the main salon through a sturdy gasketed door. Once inside, you're impressed by the openness of the space. There's no bulkhead between the saloon and the raised pilothouse. Large opening windows occupy the port and starboard sides, and the headroom is a full six-and-a-half feet.
The galley takes up the whole starboard side, with an propane stove and oven, an exceptionally large stainless-steel sink that's a full foot deep, and an expanse of Corian® countertop connecting the two. Corian® countertops are one of the several upgrades over previous models. A large refrigerator and freezer is built into cabinets that have additional counter space on top. While all those windows preclude a lot of cupboards -- there's only one cupboard in the corner -- there's plenty of storage space in cabinets and drawers underneath the counter.
The L-shaped settee behind a folding dining table on the port side pulls out to form a six-and-a-half-foot-long double berth.
Take three steps up to the pilothouse, where there are generous sized bench seats port and starboard with storage areas underneath. Another of the upgrades is the use of Blue Seas distribution panels and their placement. The AC distribution panel is under the port bench for shore power and the DC is under the helm seat to starboard, cutting down on any potential confusion between the two.
Forward of the port seat is a huge chart table measuring a full 34 by 56 inches, raised to a good height for plotting and pondering while standing. It's also an excellent stand-up workstation for other tasks, like typing up boat reviews on a laptop. There is an extra wide shallow drawer just underneath. Useful for charts or storage.
There are sliding doors on either side to provide ready access to the side decks. The helm is to starboard, with a handsome teak wheel and a broad teak dash for mounting electronic display units. An overhead dash provides additional room for VHF and other accessories.
A large hatch reveals the cavernous engine room housing the standard 330 hp Cummins Diesel. There's loads of room all around the engine to attend to any level of service, and plenty of room left over for the 9kw Onan generator. This area is so well insulated; you can carry on a normal conversation in the pilothouse with the engine going full-throttle.
Take three steps down the slightly off-center companionway to the accommodations deck. The Nordic 37 has a conventional layout, with a master stateroom forward featuring a centerline island double berth braced by hanging lockers and cupboards, and a guest cabin amidships to port with over/under berths, a large lighted hanging locker and a built-in three-drawer bureau. The head is fairly roomy and features a separate shower stall with a molded seat, a vanity with a good amount of counter space and a VacuFlush toilet.
The Nordic Tug 37 has a very nice 2-cabin and 1-head arrangement with a commanding pilothouse and salon/galley aft. Epiphany has a teak interior and pleasant neutral colors, this is a beautiful boat.
Forward is the master stateroom with a centerline near queen berth, storage on both the port and starboard sides. His & hers cubbies and reading lights. Generous hanging lockers are in the aft corners on both sides. An overhead egress hatch equipped with an Ocean Aire Skyscreen (screen or blackout) and four additional stainless port lights flood the cabin with light & fresh air.
The guest stateroom is on port. It features a lower double Pullman berth with an upper single bunk. The bunk is great for kids or a fishing buddy, and is a natural place for guests to stow their bags. With a hanging locker & drawers there is plenty of storage. Dual stainless port lights for flow-thru ventilation.
The salon is aft with windows on all sides flooding her with light. The galley is on starboard and a convertible "L-shaped" settee is on port. Overhead lights are on dimmers. Salon table has extendable wings making perfect for small or large settings.
Epiphany has a large "U-shaped" galley on starboard, with windows above flooding the solid surface countertops with light. Forward is an "appliance garage" with roll-up tambour door and adjacent microwave. Galley has a propane Force Ten 3-burner stove and oven with gas infrared broiler. Separate Nova Kool under-counter refrigerator and freezer offer plenty of refrigerated space. Corian sink in the aft corner with cabinet above.
