Iolair is the latest Nordhavn 40 to be listed and is the last 40 built with the naturally aspirated Lugger
668D. From new, her home port has been Oban, Scotland and her cruising ground has been on the West Coast of Scotland cruising the beautiful islands and highlands.

Iolair is in excellent order inside and out, and is a wonderful example of what Nordhavn do best. She is built to CE category A. She does not have a flybridge which gives her a strong purposeful look, just like her sister N40 which circumnavigated the world in 26 weeks back in 2003. Iolair could do the same if you so desire!

Her interior is the standard configuration with satin teak finish. She has been very well maintained and
we recommend strongly, viewing her in her home waters. On sunny days she shines, whilst on wet days she is a cosy retreat from the elements. She offers a safe, dependable and comfortable place to be no matter what the elements throw you!
