What happens when you cross a sportfishing boat with a luxury ocean cruising yacht? You may end up with Nordlund’s exclusive 115’ (35m) yachtfisher. This amazing design provides for incredible creature comforts and luxurious living spaces throughout, while also offering the best equipment and a spacious cockpit that any serious angler would covet. This all-fiberglass yacht can roam the oceans and seek out the best fishing spots in the world, all while traveling on her own bottom – her incredible range and seaworthiness make it possible.
Emblazoned with the name Venture More, the newest Nordlund 115 entered the planning phase over three years ago when the owner and his Captain, David Campbell first met with the brilliant designers and engineers of Nordlund. This meeting also involved the input of Alexseal representative Alex Sandas in discussing the coatings options for Venture More. “The decision for a coating system is important to be made in advance so the right equipment is acquired to apply the specific materials,” Venture More Captain, David Campbell explains.
“After looking at many other boats, speaking with captains and talking with the applicators directly at Nordlund, I was confident in our decision to choose Alexseal,” Campbell recalls. The entire Alexseal system was used throughout Venture More from the raw material to the final finish in Stars & Stripes Blue – specified by the owner as a throwback to his first sailboat painted in that same color.
“Overall, this has been a great experience and we are really happy with the ease of maintenance and repairability that Alexseal provides,” Campbell continues. “Alex [Sandas] is very knowledgeable and spent the time necessary to ease our minds and answered our questions going over the processes for the application.” Adjectives abound when describing how beautiful Venture More is after completing her maiden voyage. This ocean-going sportfisher will be easy to spot thanks to her brilliant Alexseal finish and her distinct lines that are truly unique to this Nordlund yachtfisher.
