The NorseBoat 17.5 Cruiser is an innovative trailer sailer with a legendary pedigree. This sailing and rowing boat is perfect for cruising sailors who want to downsize, sea kayakers who are moving up, and daysailors who want a high performance boat with traditional lines.
NorseBoats are gaff-rigged cats with a free- standing carbon mast, signature curved gaff yard, fully battened mainsail, optional furling headsail, Harken hardware, two rowing stations, shallow draft, positive flotation and abundant storage. They can be towed with a small car and fit in a standard garage.
“NorseBoat 17.5… sexy looking with a sweet sheerline and a shapely bow profile.”
Robert Perry, naval architect
“…it is really fun to get your hands on something like the NorseBoat 17.5, a daysailer whose simplicity, performance, and traditional good looks add up to simple pleasure.”
