The Nordic 40 is another Bob Perry design. Stiff, weatherly, and fast. Bob says it's the evolution of the valiant 40 hull. Great review on crusingworld - http://www.cruisingworld.com/sailboats/boat-reviews/nordic-40-the-belle-of-bellingham
norstar yachts just started producing new versions of the 40 and 44 20 years after they stopped being made. what other boat has this ever occured?
Yes, would like to get more insight into the N40. I thought this was a smaller version of the Nordic 44 which was Bob's improvements on the Swam 44 without the IOR restrictions
