Accommodation & Layout:

At last! Nordhavn Europe are happy and proud to be able to offer a truly beautiful Nordhavn 52 onto our Brokerage books. Sonas is barely three years old and comes with a marvellous spec and some features unique in her build. Her specification will leave most other boats envious and her proud owners have kept her in terrific shape in her short time cruising. Owners are moving up in scale but want to sell before making the commitment so she is genuinely available to start cruising. She is fully VAT paid and of course CE Cat A rated. She has spent most of her time down in the Mediterranean but her owner cruised up to the UK where he kindly lent SONAS to us for the Southampton Boat Show. She is currently residing in Howth in Ireland ready to view. Truly, there is nothing you would need to add to her, apart from personal possessions and supplies, for you to take off to wherever you have dreamed of travelling.
