StarPlath is hull #60, well into the Nordhavn 40 II series and is perhaps the most capable 40-foot passage making powerboat ever designed she and has many of the basic system configurations, port light style, and other developments that followed hull #21, the Nordhavn 40 that circumnavigated in the 2001 “Around-the-World” voyage.She has the well-proven Nordhavn dry stack exhaust system and gravity feed fuel system, producing one of the most reliable engine systems fitted on any yacht.StarPlath was purchased, maintained, and continually improved by her original owners.
StarPlath has spent her life exploring Southeast Alaska, Southern California, and has been as far south as Huatulco, Mexico. She has paravane stabilizers providing simple, effective stabilization when needed, and increased fuel efficiency when stowed.The owners report a deployment time of approximately 3 minutes, and a retrieval time of 5 minutes.An added benefit of the paravane system is that it is also effective at anchor.
StarPlath's interior: Enter the salon through a gasket, dogged, aluminum door.There is a dinette settee and table to starboard and an opposing settee to port. The galley is at the port forward end of the salon, and has granite countertops.Just forward there are steps up to the pilothouse and down to the passageway access to the head and sleeping cabins.The head, with separate stall shower is to starboard and the guest stateroom is to port.Engine room access is through the guest cabin, although there is a mechanic’s and egress hatch in the salon.At the forward end of the passageway is the master stateroom.The master has a centerline double bed. The engine room of the Nordhavn 40 II series is legendary for its space and systems organization.
There is a dinette settee and table to starboard, and an opposing settee to port.The settee cushions are upholstered with upgraded Ultra leather.

As it is with much of the interior accommodation, the pilothouse on the Nordhavn 40 seems to come from a much larger yacht and functions well for extended period operation.There is plenty of room for instrument placement on the console, the forward windscreen has reverse rake for interior light glare reduction and water shedding.

The main engine, wing engine, and fuel system configuration are the same as fitted on hull #21, the “Around-the-World” boat.
Main Engine (3665 hrs) – Lugger 668D, 105hp, continuous-duty rating, w/Twin Disc 3.9:1 transmission and 2” propeller shaft..
Main engine alternators – 1ea.160-amp, and 1ea. 40-amp.
Wing Engine– Yanmar 3GM 30 with 1” propeller shaft and Martec folding propeller – providing a redundant propulsion system rather than a second source of propulsion linked to the main shaft.
2ea. 460 US gallon vinylester resin-laminated fiberglass fuel tanks (920 gals. total).Each tank has a sight gauge and a manhole size access port in the top.
Centerline supply tank (2 gals.), gravity fed through ¾” fuel lines from the main tanks, and serves as a manifold tank for the main engine and generator. The large diameter fuel supply line reduces the chance of debris in the fuel causing a blockage.There is a water drain fitting at the low point in the tank.The centerline tank is also fitted with a sight gauge allowing cumulative fuel consumption from main engine and generator.
Dry stack exhaust with a keel cooler eliminates a main engine raw water cooling pump and raw water contact with engine. The main engine exhausts well above deck in moving air, avoiding the effect of exhaust being drawn into the boat from aft.
Isolated wing engine fuel tank – (10 gals.) The tank is fitted with a sight gauge and is independent from the main fuel system. It is filled by using the fuel transfer system so that any fuel transferred to it is filtered through the Racor 900 transfer filter
Racor duplex #75-900 fuel filters with vacuum gauge for main engine.
Fuel transfer system with in-line Racor 900 filter is used for moving fuel from one tank to the other for trim, or for filtering contaminants.It is also used to fill the wing engine tank.
