About Us

Over 55 Years of Custom Boat Building

Paul and Gary Nordlund

Family owned. Family run.

Nordlund is a family owned and family run boat yard. A rare thing these days. We're proud to have over 55 years of building custom yachts for experienced boat owners. Brothers Paul and Gary Nordlund grew up in the boat building profession and today provide the leadership for the inspired yachts created here. They work with one of the most talented crew of boat craftsmen you are likely to find anywhere in the marine yards of the U.S., Asia or Europe.

Savvy Owners

Our approach to building boats explains why so many owners have returned to have us build their second or third Nordlund. They know us, have enjoyed working with us before, and trust that we'll do our job as well as anyone can.

And it's a two way street. Boat building is a lot of fun when an experienced boat owner gets together with a talented builder. One thing we've learned is that while these boats are enormous endeavors costing significant sums, they're primarily built so you can have fun. So we try to start things off in the right direction by being enjoyable people with whom to work.

Ongoing Relationships

Of course there's a lot more to building a great boat. Design. Innovation. Quality. Dependability. And over the years our boats have proven to have all those attributes. But even more, people return to build another Nordlund because of the camaraderie here. It's why our customers come back. Simple as that.

Lots of yards can build a boat.

Few succeed at building relationships.
