Departing Dana Point, CA, this seven year old Nordhavn 46 arrived in Honolulu after a 13-day voyage. The boat experienced no failures or problems of any kind, running for over five days without its paravane stabilizers thanks to calm conditions. The owners told us they were the hit of the yacht club, as they were one of the few power boats to have made this voyage. "Vahalla" is also one of the few Nordhavns powered with twin Lugger diesel engines.
