David Goehring, Nordic Tugs’ executive vice-president/COO, said in a statement, “Our research suggested that Russia is an emerging boating market, and we feel the Russian market is going to boom in the next decade or so.” Goehring said that, between Russian’s strong economy and “Nordic Tugs being the ideal boat for the cruising conditions in that region, exporting to Russia was a logical next step” for the company.

Nordic Tugs  began exporting last year to the European market.  The company says it currently has several inquiries from dealers throughout the world who are interested in selling Nordic Tugs.  The company indicates it is evaluating the feasibility of those export opportunities.
