Nordic Boats, Lake Havasu, United States of America
Nordic Boats was established in 1962 by Orval Sommerstedt, beginning in a small shop in Irwindale, California. Sommerstedt, a stone mason from Nebraska, moved to California and by chance helped a friend build a boat in his garage... thus starting a passion for boat building and boat racing.
Nordic Boats grew to be one of the largest boat building facilities in Lake Havasu, a city built on the Colorado River and a community largely influenced by the boating lifestyle. In 2005 Randy Davis purchased Nordic Boats from the founder and original owner.
