The NordWest brand has become something of a legend with those powerboaters who crave the quality for which the yacht building giants of Sweden are renowned for. The company only sold boats directly to the end customer, no dealer network and each boat commissioned for its owner, built to their specification around the standard NordWest layouts. Having built its reputation with the NordWest 390; breaking the mould and using outdrive legs rather than conventional shaft drives. The NordWest 420 was developed to expand the range with a classically styled and finished interior which embraced modern technology. Again the yard opted for the then newly developed Volvo Penta IPS drives, delivering handling which is comparable to a significantly smaller and lighter sports boat.
