Nordship 380

The Nordship 430 is a great boat but t I find the 430 an overkill for my needs.

In what regards space, I find the 380 the more interesting of all the Nordships : It has more storage space than many 42fts and a really nice living space.

I agree with that boat tester when he says that the storage space of the 430 is amazing and that quality is shared by all other Nordships

The 380 has enough storage space even to cross Oceans and an adequate on for long distance cruising besides that I remember that the the builder and designer said to me that the boat was almost as fast and sometimes faster than the 40ft and it does not seem to me a lot slower than the 430 that seems to be proportionally an heavier boat,

I find the 380 outside design a very well balanced one. Take a look and be amazed with the interior space. I will tell you, when I am really old I am going to want one and If I was living aboard all year long and I had to choose a 38ft, I would choose this one (if I had the money for it, but that is another story).
