VAYU is a Nordia 70 PC that has been customised and finished by Dokar Yachts in Istanbul. She has all the characteristics of a true Nordia. Strong, elegant and luxurious, but now with the introduction of a new ingredient… Performance!

Although there has never been any complaint about the performance of a Nordia, Van Dam have had a long-held desire for a yacht with sleeker lines, a more aggressive design and sharper handling characteristics.

Since Nordia Owners are known for their appetite for long distance sailing, they have placed the emphasis on the concept of cruising. Sailing VAYU, a Performance Cruiser is not designed to be a nervous, bone shaking experience. VAYU is a Grand Tourer in its purest form.
