Nordic Tugs are very popular here, especially the 32' model. A good alternative is the Camano Troll (had one for several years). Good little boat; packed with features, built like a tank, and pretty seaworthy (though it has it's flaws). However, there are lots of other boats that make great PNW vessels; Sea Sport, C-Dory, Ranger, Coastal Craft, etc... I'm actually a huge fan of the 28' Albin Express Trawler with an Alaskan bulkhead for the PNW. It's got diesel power, a big cockpit for fishing, good speed and efficiency, can easily be single-handed, but still has a great cabin for up to four people, including an enclosed head.
