Re: Interesting Sailboats
EDIT.. Agree with hannah about the teak... is that an option?
Yes of course. On these boats you can really make lot of modifications. They make about 10 boats a year all with great care. As I have said I at talked personally with the owner/designer about his boats and it enthusiasm is huge even if he is not a young guy anymore. He make boats passionately and without compromises in what regards quality or price. He just do what he thinks is the best way to put his ideas on the water and this guy has great ideas and a huge knowledge:
The founder of the company Lars Buchwald started by making accommodation and as sub-contractor for several well-known Danish ship yards. During the years they have gathered a great deal of knowledge from building and developing racing yachts, producing one-off projects and making several boats for sailing around the globe.
In 1988 Lars Buchwald acquired the rights for the Nordship boat program, which was the beginning of an extensive development program, where all the experience from previous constructions was used in the process of developing the new Nordship models. It was during this time the yard changed name to Nordship Yachts Aps.
At the beginning of 1990's the first deck-saloon yachts were introduced, and today the Nordship model program consists only of deck-saloon yachts produced individually to meet the specific clients wishes and requirements.
In 2008 the yard celebrated its 30 year jubilee, together with the celebrations of the new facilities at the current address in Lunderskov.
Nordship Yachts is one of the leading manufacturers of deck-saloon yachts.
You can see him showing the boat on the 36ft movie, passionate as always
