Nordic Boats was established in 1962 by Orval Sommerstedt. The Legacy began in a small shop in Irwindale California. Sommerstedt, a stone mason from Nebraska, moved to California and by chance helped a friend build a boat in his garage... thus began a passion for boat building and boat racing. Involved with the San Gabriel Boat and Ski Club, Orval was building a reputation amongst the west coast boat racing community for building high performance race boats. Nordic Boats' claim to fame was the introduction of the 16' Nordic Long Deck... a flat bottom hull design introduced at the Los Angeles Boat Show in 1966. The boat was built well, had nice style and was easy to build in a small facility. After the LA Show the Sommerstedt's decided to move their company and family to Lake Havasu City Arizona in the early 1970's. Nordic Boats has since grown to be one of the largest boat building facilities in Lake Havasu, a city built on the Colorado River and a community largely influenced by the boating lifestyle.


All Nordic Boats are built with 100% Wood Free construction; closed cell foam coring, vinylester resins and all the fi nest materials. It all comes together and gives you the best product our expert team of craftsmen can produce. Choose Standard, Sport or Full Race Kevlar/Carbon Lay-ups. Wood Free construction translates into a stronger yet lighter and faster, more fuel efficient boat for your money.


We pride ourselves in our progressive boat design. What begins as an idea and a concept, develops into a tangible, and production ready boat. Though the process takes many months to complete a new model design... it starts with a vision, and is sketched on to paper. Reviewed by many and developed by some of the best craftsman with well seasoned experience and a strong knowledge of boats and marine technology. Every new model is custom, designed and executed by the best designers in the industry. Nordic Boats' finished product is always a well refined and consistent style that evolves from model to model.
