New Model: Nord West 430 Flybridge

 
Nord West will launch a brand new 430 Flybridge motor cruiser at the boat show in Gothenburg taking place from the 2 till the 10th of February. The yard is well known for its production of high quality boats and will now launch a new, slightly larger powerboat to the multi prized 420 with the same high standard, smart design and luxurious comfort that can be expected from the Orust production builder. The 430 will feature the latest in technology installed: twin Volvo Penta IPS engines with joystick control for easy manoeuvring and through a touch of a button or the intuitive DPS system holding the boats position through a series of GPS signals. Nominated as the ‘Motor Boat of the Year’ in both 2007 and 2008 the Nord West 420 has been the inspiration for the now bigger sister together with the 430 SportsTop, which is the yards latest newest model with its successful sports design.  For the first time the yard will now present the new Nord West 430 Flybridge in the same generous hull as the SportsTop and with the remarkable seagoing capabilities and low fuel consumption of the famed 420.  To put it short the 430 hull is a tweeking and slight improvement of the 420 praised underwater shape.  The yard would also like to highlight improvements they have been working with such as reduced sound levels and vibrations. Much of the equipment onboard which normally is extra options on most other manufacturers are in fact standard on all Nord West models. This makes the Nord West 430 Fly on of the most comfortable boats on the market today. The 430 Fly represents the first new model that has been developed since the acquisition of Najad and the interior design will demonstrate how the merging of two strong brands lift each other to new levels of perfection in both design and technique. Smart solutions and spacious storage facilities and a fantastic craftsmanship is the hallmark of this yard. The owner of the yard, Mr. Benny Martinsson, who stands behind the design together with the yards own and very capable development team, have put emphasis on the social space in the cockpit, saloon and on the flybridge. Well sized cabins with more natural light invites for a more comfortable and harmonic atmosphere, and at the same time the new Fly is developed for an active boating life where you can feel comfort for a very long time. Power from this new Nord West model comes from Volvo 370, 400, and 435hp units in both stern drive or IPS pod propulsion.
