SURPRISING SEA TRIAL: FJORD 36 OPEN DRIVES 44 KNOTS!
Even Fjord 36 Open-Designer Patrick Banfield did not believe it.
| Fjord News
His first calculations had been around 36 knots top speed. The boat, as radical as the bigger sister Fjord 40 Open, showed exciting speed. And a lot more than predicted.
At first tests on the windy and choppy Mediterranean near the HanseGroup Service Center MYSC the 2 Volvo D 4 with each 300 HP pushed the Fjord 36 to 44 knots!
As well, maneuvering the boat with DPH drive and joystick had been easy. The seaworthiness and performance are perfect. The new Fjord 36 Open with its 600 HP does not overcharge her driver in any situation. She is nice and of a good nature. Maritime journalists from six European countries, who came in for test trials, had the same feeling as the Fjord crew.
