The Nordic 44 is a superb local or long distance cruiser. While her Robert H. Perry design is now 30-years-old, it remains excellent by balancing performance and comfort offshore. The bow and stern have moderate volume and overhang and her sail plan is powerful. With a deep draft keel, windward performance is very strong. The deck tooling for this boat is impressive in detail with molded dorade boxes, recessed non-skid and genoa tracks, and raised hardware mounts. Strong and solid teak joinery is used throughout her interior with no use of structural fiberglass liners.
NJORD’S FAVOR is the full package for Pacific Northwest cruising with Webasto Hydronic diesel heat, Frigoboat keel cooled refrigeration, Iversen dodger, dinghy davits, heavy duty windlass and lots of chain, newer Garmin sailing instruments and Raymarine autopilot.
