(1832-1921) is a name with a special meaning to Norwegians.
A century ago
he was designing rescue vessels for the Norwegian Salvage Society that are still proving
themselves to be seaworthy beyond comparison.
In 1902, the two largest rescue vessels Colin Archer ever designed, were built in Norway and
delivered to the Russian Tsar. They were subsequently
put into service off Russia's northern coast.
Using these original drawings, Finn BurÝ, a Norwegian boatbuilder, spent
four years building the 54' Nangyala, which was launched in 1991. Her name comes from a
Swedish fairy tale where the word describes paradise.
Nangyala is available for charters out of her home port of
Oslo. An afternoon or evening
onboard is a memorable affair. She offers an exclusive setting for up to eight guests, who are
treated to a highly private gourmet meal prepared onboard by two chefs. More often she accommodates
up to 25 people, offering only slightly less exquisite cuisine. She sleeps six persons in three
cabins and is a classic choice for longer charters in the southern part of
Scandinavia. Her present
owner has spared nothing. She is technically complete and offers her guests a high degree of comfort.
Rates for day charters with up to 25 passengers is NOK 2500 (US$ 330) per hour plus expenses,
with a five hour minimum fee.
