Hi,

Thanks

I believe not. 2nd hand or trying lots of dealers for new 'old' stock might be your only way forward.

Valley did have one or two models left in the warehouse when I phoned last year but it was a while ago- give them a bell and see what they say.

Unfortunately Valley in their infinite wisdom stopped producing all versions of the Nordkapp including the LV a considerable time ago. The Forti is the only model still being produced and available to buy new. They also stopped producing the whole Avocet range at the same time. They won't even build a Nordkapp LV as a special order - something they have done in the past with boats which went out of general production.

You won't find anyone with a new Nordkapp LV for sale - your only option is to locate a second hand one. You should be prepared to potentially pay a premium because people know that they are still highly sought after and are no longer available to buy new anywhere.
