It is rare these days to find a seasoned cruising yacht in the condition we find VIKING STAR. She is hull #4 in the Nordhavn 46 series. Her owners have taken their stewardship of this yacht seriously and she awaits her new owner in “turn key” condition.

She is equipped with traditional passive paravane stabilization and Naiad hydraulic fin stabilizers.  As a bonus, the outriggers can also be deployed at anchor for additional stabilization that’s extremely effective.

She also has a unique folding mast system that allows for travel on the Great Loop and other inland waterways. The ‘air’ draft is lowered from 30 ft to  just 13 ft!

A recent haul out included complete bottom job, zincs etc. The fins were dropped and new seals installed.

NOTE:  The main engine was zero-timed in 2009 with a complete rebuild.  Engine hours: 2800

If you are in the market for a 46, she is a must see.


Entering from the cockpit brings you into the saloon. To starboard are two lounge chairs and a small desk/file cabinet in between. To port is the u-shaped dinette with abundant storage underneath the seats. Forward of the dinette is a well equipped galley. There is a Whirlpool frost-free refrigerator/freezer, Force 10 3- burner stove and oven and deep double stainless sink with a dedicated faucet and filter for drinking water. The galley has a very generous amount of storage spaces in lockers and numerous drawers.

There are six opening windows in the saloon with louvre shades. Generous engine access is through the saloon sole with five opening floor hatches.

At the forward end of the saloon, there are two stairways, one leads down to the owner's stateroom, and the other leads up to the pilothouse. The owner’s stateroom is amidships resulting in the least amount of rolling/pitching while underway. There is a queen sized berth with  four drawers underneath and cedar-lined hanging lockers on either side. There are three opening portholes and two blowers for ventilation. The head is on the starboard side of the stateroom, and a new electric Jabsco Quiet Flush toilet with fresh water supply has been installed. There is a separate shower stall. There is also an access door to the engine room from the shower stall.

Proceeding forward through a door leads into the guest stateroom. There is a double berth to port and a settee/single berth to starboard. Both have their own cedar-lined hanging lockers. Forward of the stateroom is the guest head, also equipped with the Jabsco Quiet Flush toilet. There is a separate shower stall. Access to the chain locker is through a double opening louvre door from the head. There are four opening portholes and three Lewmar Ocean Series hatches (main hatch has Oceanair screen) that provide ventilation in the guest stateroom. There is a staircase that leads from the lower stateroom directly to the pilothouse.

At the starboard side of the stairs, there is another large cedar-lined hanging locker and an alcove for the Splendide 2000S combo washer/dryer unit.

The pilothouse of the Nordhavn 46 is a spacious area and is equipped with an adjustable helm chair. There is a settee, pilot berth, table and folding chart table. The electronics are up to date and the electrical system has been highly upgraded over a standard N46. This is thoroughly detailed later in the spec. sheet. There is also a recently added Lewmar Ocean Series overhead hatch with Oceanair screen above the helmsman’s seat.

There are two remote mounted Cruisair 16,000 BTU air-conditioning units. The first feeds the pilothouse and saloon and the second feeds the lower staterooms. All interior lighting has been updated with Taylor cold cathode lighting units, even in the engine room which greatly improves efficiency and lighting throughout the entire yacht!


There have been some very significant improvements in the recent past. The yacht’s electrical system has been totally updated and improved over standard spec. The original generator was replaced with a Kohler 10kw unit with sound shield. Maintenance is made easy by a sliding base system to allow easy access to all areas. 

The inverter is a Pure Sine Wave Trace SW 4048 unit. This is a 48 volt unit that has a 4kw output of 110 volts AC and it charges the 48 volt battery bank which also services the bow thruster and windlass systems. 

The main house batteries have been replaced by three 12v Lifeline  marine AGM 8D’s.

The inverter bank consists of eight 6 volt lead acid batteries in a dedicated bay below the cabin sole in the guest stateroom.

Engine start battery for the main, wing and generator is 12 volt 8D marine AGM.

The battery charger for all 12 volt batteries is a Xantrex multi-stage unit.

The bow thruster is a Wesmar industrial spec motor and is a 13 hp unit with dual vortex propellers. The windlass is a Maxwell 2200 48 volt unit.

The main electrical distribution panel meters are all new digital units. The A/C system has been totally rewired.

The two incoming shore power inlets are now Hubble plugs and an isolator has been added with a 240 volt inlet, splitting to two 110v legs, two 110v panels. The vessel is equipped with a 50 ft. 250/50 amp Hubble power cord.

New automatic battery isolating system installed 2010.

All interior courtesy lighting has been replaced with LED lights for lower power consumption and very long life expectancy. There are 12v fans located throughout the interior.


Main Engine

The Lugger main engine  (model 6414D) was totally rebuilt in 2009 by a certified Lugger service center (fully documented) and 2800 hrs have been logged since rebuild.  During this time, the engine room and bilge were repainted and all engine mounts, battery cables and control cables were replaced.  The main engine was repainted with Awlgrip.  The Borg Warner Velvet drive transmission was replaced in 2014.  Both the main and wing engine shafts were replaced in 2006 along with new dripless PSS-PYI shaft logs.  A new oil changing system has been added for the main engine and generator.

Fuel Polisher

A fuel polishing system was added using an Oberdorfer 1 hp gear driven pump with a 27" GulfCoast filter and timer, plumbed into the fuel manifold. In addition, the vessel now has the new type sight gauges for the fuel tanks. The fuel system is also equipped with dual Racor 1000 MA filters and uses 10 micron filter elements. The fuel in this N46 is perfectly clean, visible in the sight gauges. 


Naiad model#1020 active-fin stabilizing system.  The reservoir for the system is very conveniently located in the locker on the port side of the stairway leading to the owner’s stateroom.  It is equipped with six square foot fins making this a very active system at low speeds.  Both sets of seals replaced February 2017.


Custom installed 110 volt powered UMT crane/davit for the tenders was installed.  This unit can run off the inverter or generator.  The motor was renewed in 2015 along with a new remote controller. It allows for both tenders to be placed on the boat deck or to have one secured off the stern for quick launching.

  • Maxwell 2200/48 volt system 


Cruisair 16,000 BTU (two split units).  The compressors are installed in the forward port side of the engine room.  This system results in a much quieter operation.  A maintenance access door was added from the owner's stateroom.
