2005 Norstar 360 Flybridge

by Randy Woods

The Norstar 360 is a highly regarded yacht for Northwest-to-Alaska cruising and sport fishing, and this Bellingham-based 2005 model, designed by Norstar owner Gary Nordtvedt, is no exception.

Cruising comfortably at 8 to 25 knots with its twin Cummins 380-horsepower, fuel-efficient diesels, the boat’s modified vee hull design ensures a safe and soft ride, even in rough sea conditions. The vessel also includes ample side decks and substantial welded railings for safe passage to the foredeck.

Just off the open gourmet galley, interior accommodations include a spacious forward cabin, with an island queen-sized berth and a private head with a separate stall shower. The salon includes a breakfast bar and navigation station, plus an entertainment and weather-monitoring center. Guest accommodations include a raised convertible settee, an entertainment system, and large cabin windows that allow for 360-degree visibility or added privacy with shades.

The pilothouse’s lower helm station bristles with multi-function displays, autopilot, radar, and navigation software, all of which are duplicated at the flying bridge station. The bridge also features a conversation lounge with seating for afternoon cocktails with crew and guests.

Custom features include a cockpit freezer, a wine locker, an electric towel warmer, teak and holly cabin sole, a teak cockpit, two electric cabin heaters, engine-waste heating, windshield defrosters, fresh water flushing, and large storage areas for galley, mooring, cleaning, and personal gear. Propulsion and running gear features dripless shaft seals, four-blade Nibral propellers, cast bronze v-struts and rudders, engine room sound isolation, a fire suppression system, a large capacity AGM battery system, and hydraulic trim tabs.

Other equipment items include a watermaker, a diesel hydronic furnace, a hydraulic davit, a bow thruster, electronic controls with a trolling feature, and Smart Craft engine monitoring. There is also a diesel generator, an inverter/battery charger with automatic charge relay, an anchor windlass, engine block heaters, fresh and seawater wash down at bow and cockpit, and an auxiliary machinery room separate from the main engine room with an electric-lift stairway providing access.
