The 50 ft Nordhavn has a bulbous bow, and the optional three-stateroom layout, featuring two sleeping cabins forward that share the forward guest head. The Nordhavn 50 is a venerable model in the Nordhavn line with a very attractive look and profile.


The hull was painted Royal Blue in 2005 with Awl Craft paint.



The asymmetrical layout so that the interior space in the salon and galley benefit by the port cabin side extending to the port rail. Enter the salon through the cockpit/aft salon door. The dinette table and settee are to port and a bottle locker just forward of the salon settee. To starboard just inside the door is a locker for convenient jacket storage. Just forward to starboard are two black Ekornes Consul Black Chairs (new in 2011), separated for an end table type locker.

At the forward end of the salon to port is the galley, with generous counter space, and double bowl sink conveniently located at the outboard corner of the galley, and lots of drawer and locker storage.


Just to starboard of the galley is the direct access to the master stateroom, down a few steps. The engine room access door is in the aft bulkhead of the master stateroom. The master stateroom has an athwartship double bed with hanging lockers fore and aft, drawer storage under and beside the bed and a large dressing mirror on the forward bulkhead. Access to the master head is to starboard inside the master stateroom.


To starboard outboard are steps up to the pilot house. The pilot house has an impressive electronics console forward of the helm chair. Aft of the helm chair are a large setee and dinette table. There is a single watch berth up and aft of setee. There are pilot house doors port and starboard for deck access.


Forward and to starboard in the pilothouse are steeps down to the forward door of the master stateroom, and access to the port and starboard guest staterooms. Each of the staterooms has over and under bunks. Both staterooms have access to the guest head forward.





The transom has a very useful swim step and transom door to the cockpit. From the cockpit there is access to the foredeck via the starboard side deck. There is a boarding door in the bulwark of the starboard side deck about halfway forward. At the forward end of the side deck are steps up to the pilothouse deck and Portuguese bridge, and



The foredeck is well-designed for working. Just forward of the Portuguese bridge are deck gear storage lockers. All the way forward is the ground tackle handling area, where the windlass, Freeman anchor locker deck hatch, and anchor rollers channels are situated in an area of the deck molded to contain mud and debris. All decks drain to the waterline to prevent streaking of the hull with residue.


Following the Portuguese bridge to port allows access to the port pilothouse door and steps up to the boat deck. The boat deck may also be accessed from the cockpit ladder aft. On the boat deck are the tender, davit, and liferaft canister mounted in its cradle. There is a lot of room on the boat deck for additional deck box storage and lounging.

Pilot House:
