The boat

The 430DS offers the unique opportunity to customise a 43ft (13.25m) deck saloon yacht with whatever style and layout works best for you, tailored to your needs. The extra volume within the hull gives her owner ample space beneath the saloon to create a large midships cabin or a workshop – or to increase the yacht’s already generous storage. Whether you want to accommodate two, four, six, or eight people we can advise you on a suitable layout to get the most from your yacht and fulfil your cruising aspirations.

Our most popular layout follows the Nordship tradition of having a spacious saloon in the raised deckhouse, with panoramic views out through the large windows. On this level we also have a navigation station that enables you to keep watch in cold weather and remain dry and warm while still keeping a good lookout. The galley is usually forward of the saloon, although we’ve also built these yachts with the galley below the cockpit, next to the entrance of the vast aft cabin.

As is always the case with Nordship, you get to choose the layout you want rather than making do with the one that’s easiest for the shipyard to make. If you want a longer galley, more headroom or longer berths, we’re happy to accommodate your wishes if space allows. What happens to the space under the saloon is again in your hands. It could be a spacious mid-cabin along with a heads compartment shared with the forecabin. Or you could just have a forward suite and a larger heads with a separate shower, leaving a huge amount of extra stowage space for your round-the-world voyage. There is no fixed layout, the choice is all yours.

Building process

Better build 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.


An ideal interior

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.

Sailing properties

Excellent 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. Of course our hulls need high volume inside to make your life on board comfortable and hold all of the equipment you need for extended cruising, but though 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.

Hand build

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.
