The Nordhavn 75 EYF: a perfect model


We've had hundreds and hundreds of inquiries for Nordhavn 75 EYFs. People are simply drawn to the yacht's fishability, the comfortable livability of the style, and the range it offers owners looking to hunt down elusive fish in far off cruising grounds. It certainly caught the eye of Fred Heim, a model maker who specializes in mini replica tractor trailers, construction vehicles, and boats. The retired boat builder from Marlboro, Massachusetts has taken the skills he honed constructing wooden boats and has applied them to dozens of half-scale working models. His latest achievement is a Nordhavn 75, currently undergoing water tests. That's right, just like the real thing, Heim puts his model EYF through tank testing! The finished product will not only float, but will be operational by remote where, according to Heim, in addition to drive propellers, the model will be controlled by a 10-channel radio- control system that includes stabilizers, thrusters, operating lighting, and radar. Check out some of the photos of Heim's creation on his website http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Heim.htm. The painstaking detail is surreal, and if you didn't know any better, you'd think you were actually looking at Hull #1, Audrey's Dream.
