OK, how about the Nordic 40 ??

ddimaui,

Nordics were built in the USA by the same family that built the earliest Valiants and Uniflite PB''s. They never met at drum of resin they didn''t like (except for the experiment with fire retardant additives in the mid-70''s).

In the late ''80''s, they would commission Nordics in a slip adjacent to mine. Every morning the riggers would have to wash the drool and fingerprints of my previous nights inspection activities.

Very robust construction, and, to this day, the initial owners group has taken exceptional care of these boats. Have never found a project Nordic and the resale prices attest to this fact.

Good initial build quality and good design...well worth a look.
