Re: Nordic 34 Review


Which hull number did you buy? I assume it was the one most recently on Yachtworld. I am on the hunt for one as well, and to Bleemus's comment, they are somewhat scarce!

Opto: Sorry, can't help you there. I just draw them.

... and Norstar won't make them because the profit margin isn't there....

Too bad they didn't make more of these because I never see them for sale

Re: Nordic 34 Review

I just purchased a Nordic 34 in need of engine replacement. I've been trying to remove the sink cabinet to expose the engine, and I've taken out about 30 screws to the sole and the frig cabinet. The sink cab seems to remain firmly attached. Any clues to the locations of fasteners will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Nordic 34 Review

Just an update on Rover:

I raced her in the Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race last year and we came in second in our class and fourth over all. She handled well at sea, and I'm considering racing again in 2016. I am not really a racer, but rather a "performance cruiser" so I went into the race with the expectation for a fast cruise; not a "full-on push the boat as hard as possible" race.

She is now nearly 30 years old, so I am slowly replacing systems as they age beyond repair. While doing so (replacing through hull fittings) I have discovered that the hull is very solid. That's reassuring when sailing off shore especially.

Nordic 34 Review

After looking at several boats and reading about others, I purchased a Nordic 34 last Spring. She is quite fast and handles beautifully.
The keel is a bit deep for the Chesapeake Bay however, and her cockpit is small. Otherwise it's a perfect boat for me.
I would be interested to know if any Nordic owner has fitted a new stem head with a bow roller.
Thanks for your reply!

Nordic 34

Captlauren, the Nordic 34 is a fantistic boat. I owned hull #3, the original owner. Owned "Wizard" for 14 years before I sold her to a sailor from Bellingham WA (hometown of Nordic Yachts). Sailed fast, great boat in light air of western Lake Erie and great in the heavier air of Lake Huron. I have also seen one of the original Islander 34-2's, hull #2. Good boat, but the Nordic 34 was a better boat of the two in construction.

These thoughts mirror my own. I would also be interested to hear about the Nordic 34. Watching with interest!
