DESCRIPTION: The passagemaking fraternity and in particular, followers of the Nordhavn brand, have long admired the Nordhavn 62 model, and recognized her as being the icon of the power cruising world. “MV Celebrate” is a reflection of the success of this model, which heralded the onset of a new breed of travellers being able to cruise in comfort to the most remote destinations around our oceans.

If you have been considering ownership of such a vessel, then a very rare opportunity now presents. “MV Celebrate” is a two owner Nordhavn 62. She has been lovingly cared for, and a careful review of her extensive specifications and cruising comforts will demonstrate that she has been constantly upgraded by her knowledgeable and experienced owner.

"MV Celebrate" is an Australian Registered Ship, and for Australian buyers, it is worth noting that she is fully imported to Australia, with all Duties and Taxes paid.

"MV Celebrate" is an elegant work of seagoing art, a pinnacle of seaworthiness and, above all.... a comfortable home on the water. Both whilst underway, and whilst maneuvering within close quarters and docking, she can easily be operated with confidence by a couple. For those intending long passages and long term living aboard she offers generous accommodations, sufficiently spacious storage for their own living requirements, while also offering a stylish platform for occasional entertaining with family and friends. "MV Celebrate" boasts the sought-after bulbous bow for maximum sea kindliness, and 3 Guest Stateroom plus Captain’s Cabin configuration. She has Nordhavn’s preferred durable and easily maintained GRP non-skid diamond pattern on all of her decks. All of the ship's systems are maintained in Bristol fashion, with key systems upgraded and duplicated for redundancy. Worthy of particular mention is the custom interior, stylishly upgraded with lavish upholstery and finely crafted pure white Corian benchtops, and galley and heads floors throughout... She offers custom linen and bedding to all cabins, and a fully equipped gourmet galley with top-of-the-line appliances. You are invited to take a personal tour of "MV Celebrate" to see for yourself just how well maintained she is, inside and out. She is offered with an unblemished history of safe passage making, and is now ready for you to embark on your journey of a lifetime…
