Can you still order a new Nordkapp LV?

Post by Irish Sea »

Just curious: Does anybody know for sure if you can still order a Nordkapp LV new from the factory?
With Valley you could sometimes still custom order boats even though they didn't appear in the official catalogues anymore. Anybody knows if that's also the case with the Nordy LV?
Having paddled it side by side against the 40 I think I prefer the lower volume and more playful, turnier feel of the LV. Would be a shame if they had dropped that brilliant boat completely.

Maybe a phone call to Valley CP might be the way forward?

I believe the answer is no. That is what they told us a couple of months back. Maybe some shop still has one in know there is one in the Netherlands. but that is a bit far from Dublin

I hope they at least keep the moulds and consider a re-run a few years from now. The Forti (or anything else Valley or the others have to offer) doesn't quite replace the LV so I'm out of options and have to take good care of the LV:s we have in the shed.
