The way these companies succeeded was by making a copy of a copy with little or no modification and no consideration for the aesthetic. The result was a lot of frustrated drift boats owners. For example, 15 years ago boats were built with core material in the bottom and, as a result, today they are falling apart. Potential buyers are very skeptical, because they have heard the horror stories.
With a Nord West drift boat, expect more than just a floating platform to convey you down the river. In sailing design there is an old saying, "if the boat is beautiful, she is fast." Nord West owners take a lot of pride in the design, function and appearance of their boats. And with good reason: each boat is hand-crafted to order. While most drift boats come off a mass production assembly line, each Nord West drifter is custom-built. The process is a collaborative effort between you and the owner, Philippe Naudet. Before any work begins, Philippe discusses how you plan to use the boat and what features you need.
