This world-class superyacht is able to take on the most extreme cruising itinerary. It is at the root of Nordhavn’s newest collaboration with Vripack. The Nordhavn 148. with ice capability. The possibilities of this adventuresome, forward-thinking cruising ship are infinite thanks to the combined efforts of the world’s foremost expedition yacht brand and Europe’s premiere yacht design and engineering firm. This yacht is built to the highest structural standards and designed with contemporary luxury.
Beautiful and sleek yet big and brawny, the N120 gracefully carries the owners and up to eight guests, indulging them with spaciousness and richness. With four decks, four king-sized guest suites and a tantalizing owners’ retreat, she may rightly be considered a personal luxury ocean liner.
This design is a stepping stone between the large cruiser and megayacht categories. For the enthusiast who is seeking megayacht-like style and features in a boat that is still able to be managed with no – or minimal – crew, the Nordhavn 96 is the ideal solution. She is the 2017 Winner of the International Yacht and Aviation Awards.
Building on the experience of hundreds of thousands of ocean crossing miles and applying the “form follows function” rule, this ultimate offshore passagemaker has been designed in an aft wheelhouse configuration. For comfort and visibility at sea, this arrangement cannot be beat and with her long foredeck, tenders up to 20 feet can be accommodated.
The N80 was born out of the demand for a boat that bridged the gap between the Nordhavn 76 and the Nordhavn 86. This new yacht will be powered by twin 375 hp John Deere engines, will have 4 staterooms and room for 2 crew. Optional lay-outs will include a captain’s cabin behind the bridge or an upper level owner’s suite behind the bridge in lieu of the sky lounge.
With popularity of the “northwest trawler”-style boat on the rise, PAE set out to create a new, big modern passagemaker that fused this salty look with the advanced systems of the latest Nordhavns. The result was the Nordhavn 76: developed for those yachtsmen who want an aft pilothouse boat which carries its shore boats on the foredeck. Like our venerable Nordhavn 62, the pilothouse of the N76 is set aft, carries its crane forward and can launch its shore boats off either the port or starboard side. Based on the hull form and specifications of the N72, the simple goal of this new model was to create a small superyacht which was true to the rugged ocean going heritage of other Nordhavns while at the same time stunning in her elegance, fit and finish, systems and engineering.
The N75 EYF is safer in rough weather when sea conditions force a slower running speed, which is always a major downside to the typical small rudders found on sportfishers (the N75 EYF’s standard stabilizers also promise a comfortable ride in rough seas). Additionally, the EYF’s 22 -foot four-inch beam permits a new Nordhavn standard feature: twin engines. A single screw is not an option. The N75 EYF sports Detroit Series 60 diesels and a cruising-speed fuel burn of 12 to 15 gallons per hour – a trickle compared to a typical sportfisher built for nothing but speed with noisy behemoth diesels guzzling 100 to 200 gallons or more per hour. Why not trade expensive high speed for high efficiency, quiet comfort, four-star luxury and the ability to explore the world’s premier fishing spots at your own pace?
For years, we at P.A.E. had fielded requests from Nordhavn enthusiasts – as well as existing Nordhavn owners – who wanted us to build something larger than our venerable 62. After studying the market and realizing that the need for a bigger Nordhavn did exist, we developed the Nordhavn 72. The simple goal of this new model was not merely to extend the length of our then flagship, but rather to create a small super yacht: true to the rugged ocean going heritage of other Nordhavns while at once stunning in her elegance, beauty, fit and finish, systems and engineering.
The Nordhavn 68 picks up where her iconic smaller sister, the Nordhavn 62, left off: a salty, seaworthy, aft-pilothouse yacht capable of offering extreme comfort, luxury and of course, capability. But the N68 incorporates a modern feel and better space planning, and perfectly fills the size gap that exists between the aft pilothouse N63 and the larger Nordhavn 76 in the current Nordhavn line-up.
“There are those who have great affection for the aft pilothouse boat and the 68 fits perfect among the 62, 63 and 76,” says PAE President Dan Streech.
After introducing the NORDHAVN 55, which closely followed the successful launching of the new 43, 47 and 72, Pacific Asian Enterprises (P.A.E.) continues to strengthen its leadership position in long range, full-displacement passage makers with the NORDHAVN 64. The design incorporates the company’s newest styling and showcases its innovative approach to creating extra-spacious interior accommodations.
The Nordhavn 63 is yet another iteration of one of our most proven hull forms, the Nordhavn 55 became one of the most popular, and one of the most tested models we’ve produced. We designed the 60-foot version of the N55 platform to meet owners’ demands for increased space.
The N60 boasts the same roomy interior as the N55, but gives owners an additional 5 feet of space in the cockpit and lazarette, allowing more room for activities like diving, fishing and dockside parties with family and friends. The longer cockpit also allows the boat deck to be extended for a larger tender and more room for sea kayaks, jet skis and other toys. An additional benefit is a speed gain of about a third of a knot and an improvement in range thanks to the longer waterline of the N60.
The new coastal pilot features a semi displacement hull designed for modest top speeds in the 18-20 knot range and an efficient and sea kindly ride at lower cruising speeds. The design features a “CE – Category A” unlimited offshore rating, insuring this vessel has the sea keeping and strength capabilities to take on the most serious coastal cruises of up to a thousand miles. For example, a perfect vessel for North American cruising – from Alaska to Maine.
PAE’s interest in sail has been rekindled with their innovative design: a motorsailer that will have true Nordhavn capabilities with transoceanic range under power alone and modest sailing performance in offshore conditions.
The new N52 differs itself from the 47 with three central design modifications – each of which combines to make a sleeker and slightly more efficient boat. The most significant of these changes is a cockpit extension, which opens up the rear of the boat as well as elongates the yacht’s lines.
The Nordhavn 475 will be based on the hull of the Nordhavn 43 but she will be a much different boat, starting with a completely new deck and flybridge. The N475 represents the sleeker, elongated look of modern Nordhavns with the incorporation of an extended cockpit and boat deck, providing not only a more streamlined profile, but also allowing for greater space in the cockpit and more room up top for toys and a bigger tender.
After over seven million nautical miles of documented ocean crossings, Nordhavn has set records that will never be challenged – except maybe by other Nordhavns.
The venerable Nordhavn 40 holds the world record for the fastest circumnavigation by a production powerboat. How do you top that? Our answer: use all of our experience and start from scratch, make no compromise, spare no expense, employ the latest design technology and incorporate the world’s most advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis to produce the most capable, efficient, safe and sea kindly Passagemaker ever built. We call it the all new Nordhavn 41.
