Arcadia II looks every bit the part of what she was built to do – cruise oceans and provide comfortable accommodations for her crew through extended periods of time aboard. She has the history to back it up too, having already carried her crews many miles over open oceans and through the wilderness back waters of some of the most rugged regions on earth. She is a non-flybridge model Nordhavn 47, giving her a pleasing profile, and additional gear carrying ability.
The Nordhavn 47 occupies a crucial position in the Nordhavn line. It fits easily into small marinas, yet is equipped with many of the features found in the larger models in the Nordhavn line. The engine room space is extraordinary for a 47-foot yacht, and it connects with the lazarette through an aluminum door aft. The AC electrical system is 220-volts, so the 47 has a separate washer and dryer. The electrical system has sufficient capacity to support a full size Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer/icemaker, plus an additional smaller freezer, helping to ensure that there will be ample capacity for your fish catch. With her 1325-plus gallons of fuel, a 12kW generator, Spectra watermaker, Hurricane heating system, and additional equipment complement, Arcadia II can support her crew in remote locations for weeks or more at a time. Arcadia II is ready to cruise. Her equipment list even includes some of the most relied upon fishing gear in the Pacific Northwest.
Arcadia II is easy to view, located in Seattle, about 20 minutes drive north of Seatac airport.
Enter through the aluminum Dutch door from the cockpit into the salon. To starboard is a crescent shaped settee with a hi-lo table. The table can be moved to suit dining needs, and is one of two tables provided. The alternate table has several fold-out leaves, that when folded out can accommodate up to eight diners.
To port is an opposing settee with drawer storage under, and also behind the backrest cushions.
The galley connects to the salon forward. Forward in the salon to starboard are steps up to the pilothouse, and outboard of the steps are the washer and dryer behind a fully louvered door.
The pilothouse is generally isolated from the other living areas in order to minimize light intrusion, and to maximize visibility.
Outboard to starboard are stairs leading down to the staterooms. The master stateroom is aft of the lower stair landing and the two forward staterooms are forward of it.
The bed in the master is oriented longitudinally, and an ensuite head is located outboard to starboard. The engine room door is aft.
The two forward staterooms mirror one another, and have two lower fixed bunks with pull-out bunks above. The two staterooms join the common head forward.
Please see below for specific area-by-area features of the interior.
The starboard side deck is a secure walkway guarded by a high bulwark. There is a side boarding door centered about fore and aft. The side deck joins the cockpit aft, which also has a transom door for access to the swim step. The swim step includes moveable “staple” rails, and makes a good platform for diving, tender or kayak access or mooring stern-to. There is also a stainless steel ladder for water access. There is enough width to allow boarding from aft, port or starboard, adding to mooring flexibility.
Moving forward and up some steps on the starboard side deck leads to the security of the Portuguese bridge, and onto the foredeck. There are two stowage lockers in the Portuguese bridge, and steps and a bulwark door leading up to the foredeck. There are two deep molded-in lockers aft on the foredeck. A molded-in ground tackle area forward of the Maxwell windlass contains debris brought aboard by the anchor chain. There are two drains to the waterline so that sediment does not streak the hull topsides. A cast-aluminum Freeman commercial hatch allows access to the chain locker below. Forward of the windlass there are two anchor rollers.
Moving around the Portuguese bridge to port and aft are steps up to the boat deck.

The main salon will accommodate a crowd in comfort, and its connection to the galley creates a very convivial environment for entertaining. Although there is ample sleeping space between the staterooms and pilothouse for most occasions, overflow sleeping space can be created by sliding out the port settee increasing its space by 50%. The width of the starboard settee can be increased by 6” by removing the seat back cushions.

The Asko washer and dryer – an upgrade over standard - are forward and to starboard behind a fully louvered door. The dryer vents to the outside.
Just inboard of the washer and dryer are five steps up to the pilothouse. The pilothouse is a comfortable place for a group to gather underway and often serves as an office with a view when moored or at anchor. Forward raked windscreens aid in shedding water and eliminate light reflecting onto the glass from the electronics during night operation. There are two opening vent panels in the forward windscreens. There are Dutch doors port and starboard out to the deck. The doors and windows are commercial grade built by Diamond/Seaglaze.
Above and below the windscreens are large upper and lower instrument consoles where the electronics complement is installed, positioned so that the screens on them are legible from most areas of the pilothouse interior.
A Stidd helm chair provides a comfortable and adjustable position with excellent visibility for operations underway. The chair is located comfortably in reach of the instrument console and the bulkhead mounted destroyer wheel with is hide-covered rim. To starboard in the pilothouse joinery is the electrical distribution panel with its digital meters allows electrical systems to be monitored easily. There is a Link battery monitor on the upper console as well.
Aft of the helm chair are the dinette settee and teak table with fold-out leaves. The cushions are upholstered in light beige Ultraleather. A watch berth is just aft and above the dinette seat back, and pulls out for extra width. An off-watch crewmember can rest conveniently within easy reach should assistance to the on-watch crew be necessary. The watch berth is also a favorite with kids, too.
To starboard and forward from the pilothouse are steps down to the landing for access to the master and guest staterooms. There is a Sub-Zero freezer in the stair-well adding to the useful cold storage capacity aboard. The steps have red courtesy lighting integrated into them.
To starboard and aft in the pilothouse there is also a large hanging locker just inside the starboard pilothouse door.

Forward of the landing from the pilothouse are the two guest cabins – the port and starboard cabins are each furnished with one built-in bunk and one pull-out bunk over it. Each of the bunks has a bulkhead mount reading light. There are four drawers under each lower bunk and two drawers inboard in each cabin. There is a hanging locker forward in each guest cabin also.
A door at the forward end of each cabin provides access to the common guest head and shower.
Light and ventilation are provided via two oval opening ports with deadlights, one round opening port, and one Lewmar deck hatch in each of the guest cabins. The ports and hatches have insect screens, and the deck hatches have shades as well.
Forward of the two guest staterooms, the guest head features a travertine topped vanity with a custom pottery sink with a Grohe faucet and aggregate backsplash. There is a large towel/linen locker on the starboard side of the compartment. There is a cabinet with mirror doors over the vanity.
The toilet is a Raritan Atlantes fresh water flush electric type. The shower has 6'-9" headroom, and is fitted with a Grohe European type shower fixture.
The cabin sole is travertine tile.
A ducted exhaust fan and Lewmar overhead hatch add light and ventilation to the space.
Aft of the landing from the pilothouse steps is the master cabin. The bed is queen size, with a Sleep Number mattress, accessible from each side and has drawer storage under. There are two hanging lockers and drawer storage outboard to port. Over the head of the bed is a bookshelf with a removable fiddle to contain the books. There is an adjustable gooseneck reading lamp above each side of the bed.
Forward of the bed is a bank of drawers and a mirror over it.
There are two oval opening ports with deadlights to port.
A Raymarine ST60 multi display and an Icom VHF remote access (RAM) mic are mounted just outboard of the bed.
The master head is large will lots of travertine topped vanity space, with a custom pottery basin, and Grohe faucet set into it. The backsplash is custom aggregate. The toilet is a Raritan Atlantes electric freshwater flush type.
The shower stall has 6'9" headroom and has a Grohe European type shower head. The cabin sole is travertine tile.
Engine room access is in the master stateroom through a full height door on the starboard side of the bed. The door is gasketed, insulated aluminum, with a window, and lockset and two dogs for a positive sound and air seal.
One of the outstanding features of the Nordhavn 47’s engine room is its headroom, allowing easy movement fore and aft. All the way aft in the engine room an insulated aluminum door with lockset and dogs allows access to the lazarette interior, making night time equipment inspections safe and easy.
The engine room is ventilated by two air intake plenums aft and one exhaust fan outboard forward, and an exhaust fan moving air up along the dry stack.
The engine room is insulated with 2" foil faced leaded foam, covered with aluminum perforated plate.
Maintenance strakes are contoured into the hull underbody to provide both additional headroom around the main engine, and to provide space for a flatter main engine shaft angle for increased propeller efficiency. As a result there is a remarkable amount of engine room space for a boat of this size.
The owner of Arcadia II has come up with a way to include a larger multi-drawer toolbox in the engine room interior by mounting it between the engine guard rail and the outboard face of the engine room. The result works well, still allows access to the port side of the engine, and accommodates about all of the tools necessary onboard. In addition, there are racks of open end wrenches and ratchet end wrenches mounted on the forward bulkhead, all for handy access.

The single Lugger main engine is a time-and-distance-tested Nordhavn configuration. With dry stack exhaust and the Nordhavn gravity feed fuel system, the propulsion system is the most reliable of any in service. It has been tested over many years and millions of cumulative miles, including those racked up over numerous transoceanic passages dating back to the introduction of the Nordhavn 46 in 1988.
By using a dry stack exhaust system, the raw water cooling pump on the main engine has been eliminated.Instead of having a heat exchanger onboard the engine, the coolant circulates in a closed system through a keel cooler mounted into a molded recess on the outside of the hull. As a result there is no raw (outside) cooling water circuit to ingest weed, plastic, or other marine growth, nor is there a rubber impeller, normally fitted to a raw water pump, to be damaged by debris, or disintegrate due to wear. The only pump in the system is a long-lived metal vane type in the closed cooling system.
Rather than mixing with water and exhausting at the water level, exhaust gas from the engine is discharged from the dry stack well above the deck and superstructure to eliminate the “station wagon effect” of pulling the exhaust along with the boat while underway. Exhaust noise is diminished because of the absence of the “water-hammer effect” from the cooling water discharging with the gas at the waterline.
Stabilization – Significantly, Arcadia II has redundant stabilization systems: the Naiad system 252 active fins, and also a set of passive paravane stabilizers. The active fins are very effective underway, and Naiad has been a leader in active fin systems for many years. The paravanes provide a back-up system to the active fins, should a mechanical problem occur. The advantage of the paravanes is that they will also function for “at-anchor” stabilization, replacing a separate “flopper-stopper” rig.
