44 Norseman 447 CC 88 Wendaway

If you have landed on this listing, its because you know about the legendary Norseman 447 one of the celebrated blue-water cruisers, a true thoroughbred that makes virtually every Top Ten list of boats to cross oceans in. And this despite the fact that the last Norseman was built in 1988.

And when you look at this offering of WENDAWAY, hull #69 of 74, built in the very last year of production and see how she has been lavished with care and attention since she was launched - youll begin to understand why she is a thoroughbred among thoroughbreds - unsurpassed.

Every expenditure attests to the owners constant goal of improving WENDAWAYs performance, reliability, and safety. For those who aspire to long distance passage making in comfort and confidence, and have become discouraged by the cost of a Hylas or Halberg-Rassy, you will definitely want to view WENDAWAY.
