News: Nord West August 2010

SHOWING NEW DYNAMIC POSITIONING SYSTEM
When activated the Dynamic Positioning System maintains your boat´s heading and holds it in position, even in a strong current or in windy conditions. The system uses twin GPS receivers in the special antenna to determine the boat’s position and heading. A perfect feature for waiting at the fuel dock or for a bridge or lock to open. When mooring, the Dynamic Positioning System enables you to “Hold Station” so that your crew can prepare fenders and lines totally stress free. The function is amazing, but it is something which needs to be seen to be fully understood. Nord West therefore show a short video on its website to demonstrate how the system works, but as anything it must be tried to truly appreciate its benefits. You will of course be able to see the function live in the Nord West harbour during the boat show Open Yard at Vindön/Orust on the 27th to 29th of August.

NEW FOR 2011
In the autumn Nord West will be introducing a number of new upgrades in addition to the DPS and the new Nord West 430 Sport and SportsTop. Amongst other things, all new boats will be built with a black waterline and black covers as standard. You will however still be able to choose marine blue or light grey if you prefer. Nord West will also be introducing an extended choice of exterior fabrics from Anthracite grey, marine blue and cappuccino. Nord West has also extended the standard equipment list with a 7" Volvo Penta colour display at each helm, a LifeSaver rescue boy, additional LED lamps in the cockpit and flybridge plus a heating outlet in the cockpit. Our Flybridge and Coupé models now benefit from a more ergonomic helm position and new instrument layout for your added comfort and ease of use. Nord West is also offering the option of a forward or rear facing convertible helm seat at the forward end of the saloon sofa on other models. This was previously only available on the Nord West 370 Coupe or Flybridge model.
