Nordship 380 DS

The Nordship 380 DS has a wonderful raised deck saloon that gives everyone on board unrestricted views out. She also has a full-beam owner’s suite aft including a snug area – the hallmark features that one expects to see on the larger Nordship deck saloon's. The interior can be customised in design, layout and style.

Should you want a private en suite heads and shower for your spacious owner’s cabin, you can have one. If you’d prefer a workshop or office instead of a forecabin, we can make that too. The Nordship 380 DS is designed for offshore sailing and extended cruising – and you get to decide which features are most important to you.

The standard layout includes a large heads compartment down a few steps forward of the saloon. There is excellent headroom in both the toilet area and the separate shower compartment. Opposite the heads is the long, linear galley, fully equipped for long-distance cruising.

On the deckhouse level is the navigation station and raised saloon with seating for 6 people. Aft of the deckhouse is the snug area. This is a space that most owners want to customise. Surrounded by handcrafted wood, it’s a sumptuous place to relax with a nightcap from the drinks cabinet and a book from the ship’s library. Alternatively, you could make this a TV lounge or dedicate it to a pilot berth. The choice is yours.

On deck, the Nordship 380 DS is the smallest boat in the range to feature our split cockpit design that separates the sailing area aft of the wheel (with all the lines led to the helm) from the forward part of the cockpit, which is designed to be a safe and comfortable place to relax.

Inside a Nordship 380 deck saloon
Building process

The interior layout is tailored to your personal design. We can incorporate your ideas into one of our recommended layouts, or you can have the interior modified in any way that best suits you.

Building process

A Nordship yacht can be built to your exact requirements, even down whether you’d prefer to have a balsa or a Divinycell foam core in the hull to save weight and improve strength. Our semi-custom range gives owners free reign to get deeply involved with the design of their yacht, so before the gelcoat touches the mould you know you’ll have the right boat for you.

If you prefer even fewer constraints, our Custom Line gives you complete freedom to have the Nordship you’ve always wanted, built just for you. Whichever of our yachts you choose, she’ll be built with levels of passion and the craftsmanship that very few other yards can rival.

Nordship Steelframe in the hull
Building process

To make our boats strong and spread the loads associated with the keel and rig, we use a substantial galvanized steel frame laminated into the hull. But we don’t stop there. Every piece of furniture, bulkhead or seat base that lies against the hull is laminated into position, increasing the hull’s strength and its rigidity.

The interior is another area where our yachts excel. Not only are they hand-crafted by highly experienced Danish craftsmen, we can tailor the interior to precisely suit your personal preferences: your choice of layout, your choice of wood, your choice of styling.

Our raised saloon in the centrepiece of all our yachts. The distinctive large coachroof windows give those inside a great view out, whichever direction they are facing and whatever the weather. You might want to shelter from the sun and its heat or seek warmth and refuge during a cold wet winter’s sail – either way, a Nordship saloon is a wonderful space to relax in.

Whether you’re on passage or in harbour, the aft cabin has remarkable living space for the size of yacht. Unlike most other shipyards, we don’t try to cram accommodation for four people under the cockpit. Instead, we give you and your partner space and privacy away from the rest of the crew, with your private en suite toilet and shower compartment available on most models.

Sailing qualities

Don’t be fooled into thinking that because our yachts were built for comfort using top-quality materials, they weren’t built to perform well too. The use of a high-aspect ratio rig with a moderate sail area and a sweetly balanced, easily driven hull form with a lead-bulb keel, all Nordship yachts are nimble and rewarding to sail with a healthy turn of speed.

We make sailing easier and more enjoyable by offering a self-tacking jib as standard. This complements the modern high aspect ratio rig perfectly, keeping loads easily manageable whether you’re on deck alone or sailing with a crew.

Sailing qualities

All Nordships are designed around the wheel, so that the helmsman has all the lines from the mast and all sail controls within easy reach. It’s important to us that no lines are led to the aft edge of the coachroof, as they are on many other yachts. With that arrangement, when you’re behind the wheel you can almost guarantee the line that needs adjusting is the one furthest away.
