The space

Enjoy your stay on a 1988 Nordic Tug!! This boat is perfect for 2 people and can accommodate up to 4. All the amenities of an apartment but on the water. The boat is moored off of Westlake ave, on lake Union, less than a mile from South Lake Union's great shops, bars and restaurants. In the other direction, Fremont (otherwise known as the center of the universe) is a fantastic location for a place to eat, shop and play! And if you want to checkout downtown Seattle, the light rail is very convenient! Or its a long walk (less than 3 miles). Also, I will gladly take you out on the water if you have an interest and if I'm available to do so (I do charge a fee for my time and gas) I want you to really enjoy your stay, so you tell me what you want and I will help make it happen :-)

Bedroom/stateroom - There is one stateroom located in the front/bow of the boat. There is a small bench and a bed/berth that sleeps two comfortably.

Bathroom/head - There is one head located in the front/bow of the boat. It contains a pump toilet and a separate shower. It is small but very usable. The boat contains a 6 gallon hot water heater, so it's great for one shower or two quick showers. The head also contains a sink and a large mirror.

Living quarters - The main cabin is located towards the aft/rear and is a relatively large space. It has a built in sitting area that can seat 5-6 and will also fold out to make a queen sized berth/bed.

Kitchen/galley - The galley is located in the main living quarters. The stove is a two burner propane stove with a small oven. There is a microwave, small refrigerator, and a small sink with filtered water. I have a large folding table that can be used to eat on. Also, on the back deck there is a small propane BBQ.

Bonus room - This is what I like to use as the entrance. It is located midship and has a cabin door on each side of the boat.

Deck - Starting at the stern/back of boat. There is a cockpit/outdoor area at the stern/back of boat. This area contains a ladder to the upper deck and a hatch for entrance to the living quarters. The Upper deck has a railing all the way around and is a great place to watch the mornung sun rise above Eastlake.

Boat location - The boat is located on a dock which has a few floating homes and other boats on it. The dock is in a very unique place with giant fishing boats, business offices, liveaboard boats close by. The water is almost always calm due to being located in a tucked away marina.

Surrounding area - At first glance you might not realize what a perfect location you are in. You will be in walking distance (less than two miles) from South Lake Union, Queen Anne, Eastlake and Fremont. And within 3 miles you can add Green lake, Phinney Ridge, Ballard, and Downtown Seattle. Each one of these neighborhoods has its own unique twist. Each one has some of the best bars and restaurants in the city. If you like live music, the Tractor Tavern is one of my favorite venues (Ballard). If you are in town on Sunday, make sure you check out the farmers market in Fremont or Ballard. Great local produce and a wonderful environment to just hangout in. Other notable areas worth checking out are: International District (5 miles), Belltown (3 miles), Golden Gardens (4 miles), Discovery park (4 miles). I would be happy to recommend things to do, as well. Also, I will do my best in helping you get around.

Disclaimer - This is a boat not the Four Seasons. This is a comfortable boat but by no means is it super luxurious. I keep the boat clean and cared for but it is an old boat. It has been used. I don't want to make this boat sound better than it is, although it is pretty awesome! It is on a dock near fishing boats and that can cause animals to be around. I have not had any problem with animals of any kind except maybe a bit of bird poop. But you should be aware of the different things you might experience when staying on any boat.

I have lived on this boat for over 2 years and have really enjoyed my time here and want you to enjoy your time here as well. Please contact me with any questions :-)

Sean's Nordic Tug is a heavenly place to stay! It is cozy, clean, well appointed (even has a hair (URL HIDDEN) close to a fabulous restaurant and steps away from your morning coffee at the deli! I travel on public transportation and found the #40 bus from Westlake Center...the same place from which the monorail runs....stops 15 feet from the entrance to the dock! What a bonus. Stay at Sean's, park your car free and do your exploring on Seattle's extensive busses, light rail and trains! Getting to the airport is a breeze on the #40 and light rail. Being on Lake Union is exciting with the floatplanes taking off and landing, kayaks, sailboats and more! The whole experience is a dream. Oh, and Sean is the perfect host.

We were so incredibly impressed with all the directions, kitchen supplies, cute bedsheets, and instructions on how to use and find everything. I LOVED LOVED LOVED getting to see the sunrise and have a picnic on the front deck. Amazing stay and very very clean. And Sean was super fast and friendly with communication .

Sweet, very sweet. Romantic view of downtown from the top of the boat and stunning city lights in the evenings. Bed was super comfortable and the instructions for checking in were detailed and accurate! Kitchen fully equipped and charming. So peaceful. Loved our stay.

We arrived late at night and exhausted, but check in was easy and the boat was clean and comfortable. Before our trip, and during,Sean was easy to reach, cheerful, and helpful. If you're looking for luxury accommodations, this might not be your cup of tea, but if you're a little adventurous and enjoy unique experiences, Sean's tugboat won't disappoint! We would definitely love a return visit to the Nordic Sun.
