World Premier of the new Nord West 430 Flybridge

Nord West & Najad will launch a brand new powerboat at the boat show in Gothenburg taking place on the 2-10th of February. The yard is well known for its production of high quality boats and will now launch a new, slightly larger powerboat with the same high standard, smart design and luxurious comfort that can be expected from an Orust production. Onboard you will find the latest in technology installed: twin Volvo Penta IPS engines with joystick control for easy manoeuvring and through a touch of a button the intuitive DPS system holding the boats position through a series of GPS signals.

Nominated as the ‘Motor Boat of the Year’ in both 2007 and 2008 the Nord West 420 has been the inspiration for the now bigger sister together with the Nord West 430 SportsTop, which is the yards latest newest model with its successful sportier design.For the first time the yard will now present the new Nord West 430 Flybridge in the same generous hull as the Nord West 430 SportsTop and with the remarkable seagoing capabilities and low fuel consumption as the Nord West 420.

The yard would also like to highlight improvements they have been working with such as reduced sound levels and vibrations. Much of the equipment onboard which normally is extra options on most other manufacturers are in fact standard on all Nord West and Najad models. This makes the NW430 Fly on of the most comfortable boats on the market today.

NW430 Fly represents the first new model that has been developed since the acquisition of Najad and the interior design will demonstrate how the merging of two strong brands lift each other to new levels of perfection in both design and technique. Smart solutions and spacious storage facilities and a fantastic craftsmanship is the hallmark of this yard.

The owner of the yard, Mr. Benny Martinsson, who stands behind the design together with the yards own and very capable development team, have put emphasis on the social space in the cockpit, saloon and on the flybridge. Well sized cabins with more natural light invites for a more comfortable and harmonic atmosphere, and at the same time the new NW430 Fly is developed for an active boating life where you can feel comfort for a very long time.

Since over a year now the well renowned brand Najad sailing yachts is part of the company’s portfolio. The yard has also implemented its experiences and knowhow into the Najad models now built at the yard. Two newly produced Najads, the Najad 410 and the Najad 440CC built just recently at the yard will also be on display at the show.

Customers buying a new powerboat or sailing yacht often have a boat in trade and therefore the yard has specialized in refurbishing all boats before being presented to new potential clients in the 2000m2 show room on Vindön.

A boat purchase is always an experience which should result in a comfortable boating life. Therefore, the yard put the same care and effort on all boats delivered from the yard. All the available boats are listed on Nord West & Najad’s website.

The unveiling will take place at 13:30 and 18:00 at the boat show in Gothenburg on the 1st of February 2013. Welcome to join the Nord West & Najad team in their stand in a toast to celebrate the new Nord West 430 Flybridge.
