New Model: Nord Star 28 Patrol Super Sports

At its Floating Show for International Press Nord Star introduced a new version of the ever so popular Nord Star 28 Patrol first present in 2004. This new version is named 28 Patrol Super Sports, due to the strong power and great performance. The Super Sports is equipped with twin Cummins Mercuiser 350hp diesel engines. The top speed of the Nord Star 28 Patrol Super Sports was measured at 48 knots. At 37 knots, which is the most economical fast cruise speed. The boat handled thrillingly well and the trip was smooth and silent. Although we used a fairly innovative coloring for this boat, the distinct features of the Nord Star model range are still very visible.  Accommodation is a four berth layout in two convertible dinettes; one below and another on the main deck behind the pilot station.  A complete shower head and galley are available below decks.
