About Lord Nelson Victory Tugs

Built from 1983-1988, the Lord Nelson Victory Tugs have developed a strong following. Owners and enthusiasts love the blend of charm and romance of a working tugboat combined with the comfort and convenience of a pleasure yacht.  The cruising range and fuel economy is typical of a trawler. Their classic good looks and hand crafted wood interiors delight everyone who sees them.

About the LNVT Owners Association

In 1999 tug owners Tom Blackwood and Mitch Page started contacting owners in the Pacific Northwest in order to socialize and share information. Today the Association remains an all-volunteer organization, bringing together a small worldwide community of LNVT owners. All available information about each tug has been recorded, along with the history of the LNVT fleet.  We believe that recording and sharing information about our beloved tugs (individually and as a fleet) helps us maintain their beauty and value. Membership is open to LNVT owners, wannabees, enthusiasts and friends.
