Delighted to offer a customised and contemporary Nordhavn 43 onto the brokerage market. Black Swan is a head turner, with her black hull, huge inventory and care and attention put into her layout and detail, making her one of the most desirable yachts we have listed. Her owners have made her a home away from home and enjoyed every minute cruising her mainly in the Mediterranean. The list of extras and options is impressive and much she has been pampered in her 7 years of cruising. The N43 offers everything her bigger sisters have but in a package ideal for exploring areas less capable craft can never reach. She is on the market to be sold and viewing her here in Hamble is a must.

Black Swan has a custom layout in the saloon which is hard to beat. Bench seat to port and a beautiful table in ebony/black wood with smoked glass inserts. All seats come covered in Custom real leather and this really compliments the solid teak floor with its micro groove. Move seamlessly from the saloon into:

As with our philosophy the galley is integrated into the heart of the boat, keeping it social and not stuck away in the bilge.  Black Swan has had many upgrades including locker doors in smoked glass to give that modern feel. The galley countertop has also been extended out into the salon by 12 inches to make a great eating & relaxing area. Portside bulkhead in galley has metallic style tiles.  Full size fridge, chest freezer with stainless steel fronts, microwave, trash compactor, Double sinks and lots of work top space in granite finish this galley off beautifully. The gas cooker comes with oven grill and three burner hobs, and has a solenoid activated supply panel with twin gas detectors and alarms from the galley/saloon its 4 steps up into the:

The 43’s pilothouse was designed to give the space that the 40 didn’t have. There is a list of the electronics further on, also included is a Splendid washer/dryer combo. On the starboard side there is a stairwell leading forward into the accommodation. As you would expect in a Nordhavn, where there can be storage, there is storage and there is a hanging locker as you decent down and into the staterooms. Turn towards the bows and you enter: 

The Guest Stateroom
On the port side lies a deceptively large double berth, with much storage underneath the bed. There is a vanity desk to starboard and the port lights and deck hatches make this an excellent guest cabin for friends and family. Forward there is an impressive heads with a spacious shower and upgraded fresh water flush toilets. Exit the Guest Stateroom and in enter the:

The master Stateroom
Mid ship MSR’s are a real feature of Nordhavn. The heads again over terrific space, stowage, mirrors and lighting, a large shower with bi-fold door and seat and again fresh water flush electric toilets. Aft in the MSR is a full height dogged door backed with the teak which leads us down into:

Engine Room
Impressively sound proofed and laid out in a way to get access to all systems, the engine room offers unrivalled space in a vessel of this size. Black Swan has the Lugger 1066T2 main engine, the Yanmar 3YM wing engine and the Northern light 10Kw Genset. She has twin Racor filter for the main engine, the reverse oil change to main and genset added to the already very sophisticated, yet simple engine and fuel management on board.  Come up out of the engine room back through the MSR and up the stairs to the pilothouse, you can exit out onto the Portuguese bridge, again a main feature in the Nordhavn range. Here you can walk safely around the boat and up the starboard side onto the large:

Boat Deck
The 43 boat deck is good. Black Swans is great! This is a practical area to store the bespoke Williams 325 tender on her chocks lifted easily by her Brower 1000 hydraulic electric crane with wireless remote control. The crane position which normally is to Starboard forward on the boat deck was moved aft and to port. This gave more room on the portside to include a Miele electric BBQ in a custom made GRP housing which includes a sink and hot and cold taps. You will also see ‘sail’ style canvass for this deck which can be moved around the deck to offer shade. Simply put this is the perfect boat deck for storage and entertaining. 

The first thing to notice is the chair upgrade. Normally Todd chairs furnish the fly on a 43. Not on Black Swan, she has a couple of Stidd helm chairs giving a luxury and comfort normally associated on our biggest Models! She has instrumentation and repeaters for navigation and offers the perfect helm position when the weather is good and a huge vantage point when coming into an anchorage or harbour

Broker Comments:
Nordhavn yachts are head turners when anchored or coming into harbor. Do not buy this brand if you want to travel undetected! Black Swan takes this to a new level. The 43 is in this brokers opinion, one of the best-looking designs we offer and Black swans jet black hull which looks like she has just come out of the factory mold together with her features, make her a special vessel. She has all the strengths of the Nordhavn brand but in a much more contemporary package. Much thought, time and effort has gone into her and now she is ready for the adventures with a new owner.
