Building a boat in Norway

Nor-Dan Båtbyggeri was founded in 1981 by Aage end Liv Hansen and focused on the production of leisure boats and nghies, where quality was the main target. Still, there are many boats produced at this time to see, still going strong on the sea today. Quality stays

In the year 2000 Nor Dan Båtbyggeri AS decided to withdraw from the leisure-boat marked with its own developed boats, and rather be a subcontractor to other leisure -boat producers.

They expanded their product-range, so production of fishing boats, industrial casting and rental casting became over time the major part of the turnover.

Nor Dan Båtbyggeri AS appears today, with its proficiency and experience, as a high quality producer who always makes effort to provide the best products. Not this company is producing fishing boats at 32-35 feet, but the main production is parts for rescue boats and industrial casting, all in composite material. Nor Dan Båtbyggeri is a small family business with 22 employees.

Nor Dan is looking in Portugal for a mechanical engineer / industrial designer / marine engineer.
