WILLOWTARN is a terrific little ship, with a handsome, good looking and great build from Nordia. She offers great deck space and a usable pilothouse. Once on the lower level, the main saloon is a lovely place of calm and she has generous guest accommodation forward and a good owners’ stateroom aft. As with all Nordias, her engineroom is vast.
She has been totally updated by this owner for a cruise to the Southern Hemisphere. She is only now being offered for sale as his plans have changed. She would be superb for this trip and also great for high and low latitude sailing. Of course, she has also spent time in the Mediterranean and with her superb insulation is cool in the heat, aided by very good air conditioning.
WILLOWTARN is a comfortable powerful cruising yacht. I have sailed her single handed with ease. Her sail handling system works very well. She really is a true safe bluewater cruiser. I have always been taken by her classic and powerful look. She is a great seaboat that is able to push through waves that would stop other yachts of her size. The yacht has never given me the slightest concern.
