More than 70 of the 37-foot Lord Nelson Victory Tugs were built during its 1980s production run. The boat was conceived by Seattle-based couple Loren and Lani Hart and designed by Jim Backus, whose other boats include the Cherubini 45 and the Bulldog 26 aluminum tug. Victory Tugs were built in Taiwan, first by the Hai O yard (through hull No. 18) and then by Ocean Eagle Yachts. The company is no longer in business.
