New Model: Nord West 430 SportsTop


A very anticipated and expected debut from Sweden's Nord West which present the 430 model in both its forms; SportsTop with hard top and Sport open at the Gothenburg, Swedish boat show. Here at PowerYacht we show you the exclusive first pictures of the 430 SportsTop which as is usual to Nord West will challenge its other European competitors for the versatility of this sport cruiser, and the choice it gives to the owner. This starts from propulsion in stern drive or IPS pod, to a two or three double cabin interior choice. The choice of the interior of the 430 is also impressive offering three choices. From the standard two en-suited cabins layout, three cabins with cabin three being a single berth with personal head ideally suited if you carry a crew, and last a three double choice with a single shower head. For the exterior looks of the 430, designer but also company owner Benny Martinsson took a lot from the successful 370 SportsTop model with everything being bigger and more spacious. The hull is also same as the multi prized Nord West 420 Flybridge which has been acclaimed as one of the best handling IPS propelled boats around. The 430 SportsTop is powered by twin Volvo 370 or 435hp engines, this last available only with IPS600 pods, with the standard smaller unit available as both stern drive and IPS500.
