This is the last custom built Nordhavn 57 to be constructed at the Ta Shing yard. For Nordhavn aficionados, the N57 model stands as a testament to the superb design and building skills of the Nordhavn team. Sisterships of this N57 model have safely and comfortably taken their owners to remote destinations throughout the world, including global circumnavigations, and through the arduous North West Passage, and down into the extremes of the Southern Ocean and beyond. 


This is the very first time this N57 has been offered for sale in Australia. She is a stunning vessel in every respect. She offers the popular wide body salon, three-stateroom layout and a gorgeous high gloss cherry interior. She has been professionally maintained and regularly exercised throughout her ownership and this is evident on first viewing. Continual upgrades in systems and equipment in addition to the original comprehensive build selections make her an outstanding purchase for anyone looking to own the ultimate Nordhavn 57. Specific and comprehensive electrical upgrades also allow her to operate seamlessly in the Australasian 240 volt 50 cycle marine electrical environment. Her globally recognized pedigree, and her build quality and heavy-duty systems, will ensure that she maintains a high asset and resale value. When comparing her with similar sized displacement vessels currently offered in the marketplace, you will surely do a comparative cross-check. In doing so, you will easily be convinced that this Nordhavn is not only exceptionally outfitted, she is quite possibly the best value for your money of any similarly sized displacement Long Range Cruiser listed for sale.
