The Nordica 20 is close enough in appearance to the Halman 20 (page 100) that even some owners wonder which brand they have. Still, there are differences, small though they might be. For example, the keel on the Nordica is swept back more than the Halman, is 5" deeper, and the Halman features a small knuckle at the front end, which the Nordica does not. The windows in the Nordica's doghouse are bigger, and the doghouse itself is about six inches lower, decreasing headroom a bit. The Nordica offered an optional inboard engine of about 7 hp, whereas the Halman did not, and the interior layouts were also different. But by and large the boats were very similar. Best features: The springy sheer and rounded stern on both the Nordica and Halman give them a salty look. Worst features: Both brands have relatively small cockpits; more than two occupants would constitute a crowd. Perhaps that is just as well, since buoyancy aft is limited by the pinched stern; more than two occupants would push the stern down, upsetting the natural trim of the hull. Consequently the extra two berths are pretty much usable only for stowage or in harbor.
