Brokerage Spotlight: Nordhavn 55#1 Act III
The owner of Nordhavn 5501 Act III really wanted to go boating. With 30 years experience as a dealer and importer of fine yachts starting with Westsail followed by Cheoy Lee, Grand Banks/Eastbay and DeFever Yachts, he spent time getting to know his customers, hearing about their cruising stories and even tagging along for a few trips.
In 2015, having been out of yachting for 7 years, he decided he wanted to get back into the cruising game, this time with his own boat. His dream was to cruise from Dana Point to Fort Lauderdale. After completing his due diligence, he decided Nordhavn was the way to go and after much consideration, he carefully selected N55#1 from Nordhavn Southwest salesman Devin Zwick. Starting with local trips, the owner has spent the past year cruising the West Coast of the U.S. in preparation of his big cruise. But having spent time aboard his Nordhavn 55, his plans have changed and his new goal is to complete his trip on board a new Nordhavn 63. Specifically, he’d like to head North, cruise the San Francisco Delta area then head South through the Panama Canal and wind up in Florida. And he wants to do it in a larger Nordhavn designed to his exact specifications. But first, he needs to sell Act III. While in his possession, the boat has undergone a wide range of updates in preparation for sale including a brand new bimini top, new gelcoat, an upgraded AV system in the salon including smart TV and new television lift, a complete refit to his Sub-Zero fridge/freezer, new tender, and major overhaul of the davit – just to name a few.
In a few weeks, the boat is scheduled to get hauled out for some additional work such as new bottom paint, oil changes, and service to the ABT stabilizers.
