Nordic Tugs add Pacific Northwest dealer

Nordic Tugs president George Armendariz said Cap Sante Marine Ltd. in Anacortes, Wash., was appointed as a new dealer.

Nordic Tugs president George Armendariz said Cap Sante Marine Ltd. in Anacortes, Wash., was appointed as a new dealer representing the recreational trawler builder.

After acquiring Nordic Yachts Northwest LLC, Cap Sante Marine will be the distributor for Nordic Tugs in Washington. It expects to continue doing business at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes as Nordic Yachts Northwest.

Cap Sante Marine has been serving Northwest recreational and commercial boaters for more than 35 years. It has a full-service boatyard and factory-authorized technicians for Mercury outboards and sterndrives, Honda and Yamaha outboards, Onan generators and Cummins diesels, as well as the Yanmar, Volvo and Steyr brands.

Washington-based Nordic Tugs represents Cap Sante Marine’s first entry into the distribution of new boats. The newly acquired business will include complete brokerage services focusing on recreational trawlers.

“Cap Sante has long supported the aftermarket needs of Nordic Tugs owners,” Cap Sante Marine CEO Richard Wright said in a statement. “We are pleased to add brokerage sales to our aftermarket service portfolio. However, our team is most excited about the added opportunity to develop new Nordic Tug sales in Washington. We have long said that Cap Sante offers our customers everything in boating, and this acquisition allows us to fulfill another part of that commitment to our customers.”

“Nordic Tugs and Cap Sante Marine are a natural match to serve the Washington state market,” Nordic Tugs director of dealer development Cory Gracey said.
