Customer cruising plans: Once acclimated with the boat, the owners’ ultimate plan is to bring her to Bermuda and then possibly continue on to the Azores and Gibraltar. They are excited about the prospect of cruising the Mediterranean.
Notes about this boat: Hull 73 is the first 3-stateroom configured Nordhavn 52. This layout was chosen because the owner needed the extra rooms to host his boating buddies who will join him onboard during long passages. The hallway access to the staterooms cuts out the forward stairway access from the pilothouse but allows for a much bigger wheelhouse. It provides enough space for two helm chairs. Another nice custom touch in the PH is an additional drinks fridge/wine chiller.
Noticeable on N5273 is the absence of the engine room access door in the starboard guest stateroom which was removed because the owners wanted additional storage: first in the form of a bureau with pull-out doors inside the staterrom; second, they desired a proper pantry just off the galley. To accommodate for these changes, the ER access was moved to the pilothouse stairs with a hinged access hatch (see photo).
The N52 is a very popular model and this hull is a beautiful one with teak wood and a shimmery black granite running throughout.
