Little sister for the outstanding 420

What they say
“How do Nord West always get it right? Well, it has been said it is with their winning combination of traditional style and modern technology, the balance between practical new thinking in terms of spaciousness and ergonomics, and hull design by Benny Martinsson giving great seakeeping capabilities, coupled with economy and build quality.”

What we say
The Nord West 420 got a big thumbs up from MBY on its launch in 2006, winning its category in our Motor Boat Awards twice in consecutive years. So this slightly smaller model should turn heads on reputation alone.

It is likely, however, to turn a few heads on its sheer looks too. Those smart dark blue covers lined with white beading, alongside the clever juxtaposition of polished woods, makes for a hugely appealing interior and smacks of Scandinavian quality from the start. The boat has a choice of power options and drive variants including IPS or sterndrive.

The 370 offers five berths in three cabins, a single heads compartment with circular shower, a relaxed and well-ventilated saloon with good all-round visibility, a cockpit with space to dine and an integral moulded staircase leading to an impressive flybridge with fixed table and L-shaped sofa. The saloon can be exposed to the elements at the flick of a switch thanks to an electric hard top which is fitted two large glass panels.

Expect the finest craftsmanship throughout the boat, as well as mod cons to ward off that nippy Baltic weather.
