Web: Fjord New Web Site

A new website for Norwegian boat builder Fjord, who after a slow period in the market in the nineties, has come back in recent years with an interesting line up of modern shaped models. Founded in the early sixties by Alf Richard Bjerke in Arendal, all started in a small shop which could build boats up to 24 feet. Later on in 1964 Fjord moved again to another location in Fevik, expanding later on its range to 72 models from four shipyards. Needless to say this Norwegian builder was at the forefront of boat production in Europe at the time with plans for a 75 footer on the drawing board too, and only the 1973 oil crisis slowed this expansion. In 2007 Fjord becomes part of Hanse Yachts. Today's Fjord line up features a total of seven models from three ranges; Open, My Tender, and Heritage. Entry level boat is the 24 Heritage, flagship is the still in project 56 Open, and latest new comer is the 36 My Tender. The new Fjord website is available in English, German, Spanish, Norwegian and Russian languages and takes you around with the following buttons: News, Dealers, Boatshows, Company, Press, Contact, and Become a Dealer.
