Building process

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.


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.


Safety assured

Our yachts are designed for offshore sailing and extended cruising, so they have to be safe and solidly built. The centre cockpit is deep and sheltered with high coamings that form comfortable and supportive backrests. We keep the forward part of the cockpit free from lines to ensure that children’s fingers won’t find a line or a winch by accident. The forward part of the cockpit also benefits from a large bar that supports the cockpit table: the table can be lifted off and stowed, clearing the cockpit but leaving the bracing bar to hold and lean on. The helmsman has all control lines, sheets and halyards to hand so it’s quick and simple to ease sheets and bear away when required, without any need for assistance from the rest of the crew.
