Poole based, Parkstone Bay Yachts Ltd, trading as Nordship UK is the sole UK importer of these luxury deck-saloon cruising yachts.
Based on her predecessor, the Nordship 43 DS, the new 430 DS offers quality throughout from the teak decks and cockpit, which comes as standard, to the meticulously fitted out mahogany furniture in the spacious cabin. The 360˚ panoramic views from the deck saloon windows create an exceptionally light and airy feel below deck, providing very comfortable cruising accommodation.
Below deck there are three double cabins, one forward, one aft and one below the deck saloon seating, a passage galley, two heads both with showers, a large chart table and a secondary ‘evening’ saloon towards the aft cabin. As with most yachts this size, there are many interior layout options available to suit individual requirements. The spacious cockpit seats six to eight people and there is a separate ‘sailing’ cockpit to accommodate the helmsman and lines, making the boat easily handled solo.
The Nordship 430 DS, like its smaller sisters, has a modern underwater hull with a torpedo keel and free standing spade rudder. The rig on the 430 DS has been upgraded to a fractional rig and is 75cm higher than on its predecessor providing an enhanced sailing performance.
