Norseman 500 C
Bay Of Islands
The Norseman 500 Classic carries the same spirit as the line of Bob Perry-designed Norseman yachts of the 1980s. Built in Asia to very high standards, these boats have an envious following. Norseman designers saw a need for quality fast trawlers with classic lines. This is a boat launch owners and ex sailboaters can easily adjust to and sit back in some elegance and comfort.
The Norseman 500 C encompasses the best of both classic design and modernity. Featuring all the attributes of a modern vessel; from construction to onboard technology, with impressively low engine hours to ensure reliability.
Pushed along by low hour Twin Cummins QSB 480hp engines, she gives cruising speeds from 12-16 knots (economy of a trawler) and top speeds up to 21 knots, (speed of a cruiser. ) This gives the best of both worlds especially for extended passage making at low speeds. With the added security of a rugged proven hull design.
There is no such thing as too much storage on a boat and every quarter Inch of space has a locker, drawer or cavity to keep all your treasures within easy reach.
