Broker’s Comments

Nordia 55 TRUANT OF SARK is very special. Built for her first owners by Van Dam Nordia with an updated profile for bluewater, her interior was designed by UK interior designers Field Work. Executed in cherry wood, with shadow gaps, and an abundance of mouldings. Also with some lovely marquetry in ebony and ash. It is executed to the highest standards and looks today, as good as it did on launch in 1995 – except the cherry has a lovely patina and is a deep rich colour.

After a trip around the world, she was laid up before being totally refitted for another programme by the Berthon Boat Company. This refit included a significant change to her accommodation. The forward accommodation originally offered two upper and lower berth cabins separated by a forward and aft bulkhead with a shared heads and shower compartment forward. This has been altered to provide a removable bulkhead so that the area can be converted into a double berth VIP cabin with sofa to starboard. The change back to the original configuration is the work of but a few minutes.

Her current owners, who purchased her in early 2018, have kept up the good work with a refit in 2021 – so she is gleaming. She has been cruising the last four summer seasons in the Mediterranean and is ready for so much more.

Owner’s Comments

Our TRUANT is definitely the most perfect of all 55’ aluminum yachts ever built by the renowned Van Dam Shipyard in the Netherlands. Built and maintained, as well as cared for, always at the highest level and at the state of the art! Hence, TRUANT is a complete yacht for everyone, no matter how high the standards! You can get on-board, take your personal belongings and sail around the world! At the highest level!

We always sailed our yacht as a couple. Comfortable and safe from the central cockpit. You set all sails hydraulically from the cockpit. In any weather condition. That gives an incredible feeling of security. You can even operate the ‘BARTELS Furler’ with the 171m² Gennaker close from the cockpit, which is a enormous plus in handling.

The quality of the interior work by the British design firm ‘Fieldwork Design’ is still as spotless as it was on the first day. The sophistication and perfection of the woodwork can hardly be described. No limits were set for the project as you can see and, above all, feel. Life “inside” of TRUANT is a special experience. Warm and cozy. Using the example of the convertible guest cabin from a VIP cabin with a large double berth and seating in solid leather, to two cabins with two beds each. And for sure ‘en-suite’ a spacious bathroom with an electric WC and large shower.

There is no bay or marina in which this yacht does not turn heads. Hardly a stay without another yacht owner praising TRUANT for her layout and appearance. She rightly knows how to please. It was not without reason that she was voted the most beautiful of all yachts at the ARC 1995 (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers)!

TRUANT is unique and due to the highest quality of the selected materials, the high standard of service and the love for detail, that went into it her, she is a real jewel that we only offer for sale with a heavy heart. But new plans are waiting!
