I personally like it when a builder sticks to his roots. It seems when a company tries to gain an advantage over another part of the market the quality goes south. The boat looks nice, but there is a reason you dont see many Nor-Techs on the race circuit.

I don't see many "race" cats with a sofa, bed, shi!!er, shower, sink, etc. They are built for pleasure. One could say, why don't they pull a couple hulls and bare-bones them for racing. I would respond "why?". Is there any money in racing? Sure as sh!t didn't help ole Reg!

Never driven any of there boats... but all there models look amazing.. 80' luxury yachts going 60-70 is pretty impressive.

I have been very impressed with Nor-tech, in recent years.

I saw the blue 80 being built, it is amazing, and this new 80, looks even better.

59 pictures I took on Nor-Tech factory tour, Dec 2007

Here are some blue 80 ft pics I took during construction.

The photos posted are great except they don't show scale. An 80-footer is a lot of boat, and it's hard to see that from the pictures provided here.

The boat would huge if Terry Sobo, not the biggest guy on the planet (sorry Terry) were standing next to it.

That said, it's beautiful.
