We were hired to do some sea trials and interior shots for Mad Mariner, a daily online boating magazine. Pictured here is a Nordic Tug doing 15 knots. That’s something we didn’t know was possible, so we took this slow shutter-speed shot to show high boat-speed. Not bad for a comfortable home. Still, the boats are intended to cruise around 8 or 9 knots, but can go 15 in a pinch. The other boats we covered included models from Luhrs, Grand Banks, Mainship, Parker, Catalina, Lagoon, and a new Electric-powered cat. A few more of our slow shutter-speed shots can be seen at https://photoboat.com/ under Melges 24 Northeast District Champs 2007.
