Entering the saloon from the cockpit there is a L-shaped settee with a large teak table to port and built-in bench settee seating with storage to starboard. Forward of the saloon settee to port is a large U-shaped galley with abundant storage. Across from the galley to starboard are steps which lead up to the pilothouse and down to the mid-ship owner’s stateroom. Proceeding down, the walk around owners berth is to port with large ensuite head and shower to starboard. Moving forward and to port is the large guest stateroom berth in addition to a single built-in starboard berth to starboard with many storage drawers beneath. Forward is the ensuite head with separate shower. Proceeding aft from this area there is a second set of teak steps that lead up to the pilothouse. In the pilothouse there is a comfortable built-in bench seating with teak table, and extendable separate watch berth.

Alcyone represents a rare opportunity to purchase a “like new” Nordhavn 46. With only two owners since new, and having spent her life cruising the local waters of Southern California, Alcyone is the only Nordhavn 46, that we know of, with the least amount of engine hours (685) combined with the freshest, newest interior. No expense has been spared by her present owner when it comes to upgrading her equipment or maintaining her in Bristol condition. One of the important improvements that has been made in the last several years, is the upgrading and refitting of the hydraulic active fin stabilizers. Now fitted with the much improved Naiad 252 Multi Sea stabilizers, combined with the new, larger, 7.5 sq ft fins, Alcyone is now more than prepared to meet any challenging sea conditions that come her way. Other terrific recent upgrades include a high capacity Sea Recovery water maker, saloon and staterooms air conditioning, with reverse cycle heating and new AGM Lifeline batteries. The addition of a Simrad AP-28 second auto-pilot, along with its own separate Accusteer pump, make for the perfect steering combination, able to hold a true course in virtually any sea conditions. A newly installed Furuno AIS completes the electronics upgrade.

With over 1 million logged in sea miles to date, the Nordhavn 46 is the most traveled design of all the models. Don’t miss this chance to purchase a world class Passagemaker, with a non-stop range of over 3,000 miles, capable of taking you anywhere you wish to go in safety, comfort and style!
