"ESCAPE"

This Nordic 40 is a custom build for it's original and still current owner.  The yacht features upgraded finishes and improvements to the original design, overseen by designer Robert Perry and Owner.  

The Nordic 40 is proven!  The fine entry results in lovely upwind comfort and control.  The beam and displacement give her great stability.  The wide beam is also carried aft creates a very large cockpit and extra interior space.  Terrific space in the cockpit.  Shallow line locker to Stb, huge storage locker to port, aft stb is quadrant access/ emergency tiller storage, and, aft to port double propane storage. 

48" Edson SS Wheel, leather covered, pedestal with instruments, and teak cockpit table. Autopilot, ROBERTSON AP 200DL,  controls port side of cockpit close to helmsman.  6" Danforth compass.

The Nordic 40 sports a large rudder hung on a high-aspect-ratio skeg, a design that produces superb steering and exceptional tracking.  

The Nordic 40 has wide side decks, double life lines, and high wide cockpit coamings all which add to the safe movement on deck.
