Norseman 447, 1984

We have lived on our Norseman 447 Center Cockpit for 16 years. We have been very happy on her traveling the world and sitting at anchor. Our goals were to be safe and comfortable living on her at home and in far away places. We have taken every measure to insure our safety and comfort. She is also a beauty; she enjoyed new Awlgrip on her decks and topsides in 2007. She has traveled a few miles since then but still looks pristine and beautiful. Plus, she is a sailing dream, we averaged 7.2 knots crossing the Pacific and 6.5 knots crossing the Atlantic. Your turn!
