A Delivery At Home

By Amy Zahra

Just a few weeks ago, the Lenthall family took delivery of a beautiful Nordhavn 47, Outward Bound, and held a christening party to commemorate the occasion at the docks in front of our southwest sales office in Dana Point, CA.  However, the Lenthalls didn’t have to travel very far for the celebration since they also call Dana Point their home.

Nordhavn 64 Shearwater Takes Flight

By Jeff Merrill

Gliding silently miles from shore the graceful shearwater banked away from our bow and continued coasting inches over the wave tops hoping to chase a flying fish. We were on our second day of the maiden voyage for Shearwater, the latest Nordhavn 64 to be launched, and I had just started my morning watch when I saw the bird.

Up For Grabs!

By Jeff Merrill

The world is literally up for grabs for Eric and Christi Grab, and in more ways than one. Now that they have just taken ownership of a brand new Nordhavn 43, they are in a constant state of “up” – to put it loosely. It’s been more than two years since the couple first researched the boat that would serve as the launching pad to the travels of their dreams.

Love At First Sight

Last week, Jerry and Terry Gailey hosted a party in celebration of their new yacht, a Nordhavn 55 they called Last Mango.

Double The Pleasure

By Jeff Merrill

It’s not unusual to see a lot of activity down at the docks of our Dana Point, CA commissioning location. In fact, it’s the norm. And while our commissioning technicians have fine-tuned their skills at pumping out perfect new boats like a well-oiled machine, it’s not often that two boats finish at virtually the same time. It’s a tribute to the streamlined process our Dana Point techs have mastered, and our two newest boat owners recognized that – each throwing their own christening parties last week.

Nordhavn 5501 Heads to Hawaii

These days, hearing of a Nordhavn about to embark on a 2,300 nm non-stop cruise is becoming less of a big deal. Several Nordhavns have made such a trip in the past month, so last week’s christening/bon voyage party of Nordhavn 55#1, Honu Kai, was definitely more in celebration of the owners, Bill and Wanda Heaman, than of the journey to Hawaii they were about to head out on just hours later. read more
