Built in the Netherlands in 1987 by the then Dutch importer for Raymarine who named her “NOORDHINDER” and who owned her for the first 4/5 years before being bought by our family who have owned her for the last 27 years. Last year (2018) we (skipper and first mate so set up for light handed sailing) sailed her from Scotland to The Azores cruising round the Islands there for 5 weeks before returning to the Clyde in Scotland via the East and North Coasts of the U.K. just short of 6,000 miles so all systems and equipment are fully operational and in good working order, this year (2019) we cruised Scandinavia and some of the Baltic, I sailed her from Scotland to Norway and back to Scotland via Orkney from The Netherlands single handed so again emphasising her set up for light handed sailing.
