Video footage of Nordship's new 430 DS shot during Yachting World's boat test of the model. The Nordship 430 DS test features in full in our May 2013 issue.

Norship are small, but experienced traditional Danish builders who have been specialising in deck saloon cruisers for over three decades and have a semi-production range up to 43ft. They have now announced a new development, offering fully custom yachts from 46ft, claiming to be the first yard to do so.

I went to sail the 430 DS – the flagship of the production range – in Poole Harbour, to find out what the Danish yard can do.
